“While celebrating and acknowledging our uniqueness as human individuals, how do we draw ourselves together as Humanity? And what happens if we do, and it doesn’t go well? Actors constantly explore these questions, in performances, and in studio practices that build range, adaptability, and flexibility. One of the actor’s needs is the ability to channel the vocal life of the text believably and healthfully with economy of effort. By working the relationship between breath and physical body, the breath becomes the channel, or bridge, between the moment to moment needs of the external given circumstances, and the spontaneous internal responses of the character living through those circumstances. As a teacher, I strive to foster a communal space where actors can collaboratively experiment and explore their range of being in an objective way, sustained by an understanding of anatomy and technique.”
