Intro to the Suzuki Method of Acting with kt shorb - June 8

Saturday, June 8

Connect with “the invisible body”! Having recently participated in a two-week intensive at the Suzuki Company of Toga, kt shorb will offer a one-day workshop to share some basics of the Suzuki Method of Actor Training, which was developed by acclaimed director Tadashi Suzuki and the Suzuki Company of Toga.

Suzuki focuses on developing control of three elements of “the invisible body,”—breath, center of gravity, and energy production. Intensely physical, the Suzuki Method is built around what Suzuki calls the “grammar of the feet,” emphasizing a powerful connection between the lower body and the ground. Suzuki draws from traditional Japanese theater, as well as ballet, martial arts, and ancient Greek theaters.

Suzuki Method, which incorporates adaptations of Mary Overlie’s viewpoints, is a unique method of performance training for dancers, choreographers, actors, and directors that prepares the body, breath, and voice for the challenges of performing onstage.

This class is designed for working or aspiring BIPOC artists who are 16 years or older. Participation is limited to 20 artists. Registration deadline is Monday, June 3, at 11:59pm CT.
