Physical Work and Neutral Mask Residency
I've had a fantastic time working with a very talented bunch of high school actors as an artist-in-residency alongside my dear friend, WT McRae, at the Brooklyn High School of the Arts. We're winding down a multi-class series exploring a body-first, physically-guided entry into acting and character work, and I thought it would be nice to share some pictures. Here, after using Delsarte body work to explore intellectual, physical, and emotional systems in the body, we've introduced neutral masks to the students in an effort to further focus our work on physical shape, gesture, and spacial arrangement.
Many thanks to Lisanne Shaffer for inviting us to her classroom, and to Exploring the Arts for the grant!
