Character Creation is a practical approach to understanding, creating and transforming into characters. It is predominantly based on Character Analysis, which was the final thesis of Rudolph von Laban (Movement Theorist) and William Carpenter (Jungian Analyst). Yat Malmgrem (Dancer and Teacher) further developed and taught it extensively to dancers, opera singers and then actors at Drama Centre London for over thirty years.
The most notable students include Peter Brook, Anthony Hopkins, Sean Connery, Diane Cilento Simon Callow, Paul Bettany, Geraldine James, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth, Frances de la Tour, Russell Brand, Anne-Marie Duff, John Simm, Sean Harris, Michael Fassbender, Tom Hardy, Helen McRoy and Nicholas Tennant.
Art of Awareness is a combination of many modalities with a focus on bridging Fitzmaurice Voicework with The Meisner Technique or "FitzMeisner." Working from the inside to outside, it is designed to cultivate a sense of trust of yourself by making the connection between your inner sensations, feelings, emotions, breath while communicating and allowing the outside world to effect your somatic/vocal experience.
The unknown seems to be what scares people the most. It causes great discomfort and unease both mentally and physically. As a result, people try to control every experience by subtly bracing themselves and holding their breath. Maybe the thing that scares us to express is the very thing our body is asking us to experience...but too often the brain judges that response and tries to stifle it. By bringing awareness and curiosity to your breath and body's responses you can begin to unravel habitual behaviour while creating inner space to fill your acting with truly spontaneous life/behaviour both physically and vocally.
