Five Class Session, Mondays, March 13 & 20, April 3, 10 & 17, 7:00 - 9:00 PM.

Rick Wamer has been teaching, acting and globally touring his brand of physical theatre for the past three decades.  Classes will explore authentic action in the work of the actor.  Accessing the body’s storehouse of knowledge, we will explore the elements of corporeal and illusionary mime with concentration on breath and rhythm to create authentic physical sensations in role that allow for an affective performance on the part of the actor.  Drawn from the French and Polish mime traditions of the 20th Century and Rick Wamer’s decades of performance practice, we will explore a physical landscape of movement and action, that reflects the authentic presence of character through the attendance to the physical, emotional, and psychological sensations of the actor.  In the process, specific creative construction styles for mime will be addressed.

Please dress for movement, and to work with bare feet.
