Study the Alexander Technique at the Guthrie

Expand your practice to become a more dynamic, effective and open performer. This Intermediate level acting class at the Guthrie will introduce artists to the Alexander Technique and pass along tools to inform your practice for years to come. 

About the class: 
Developed more than 120 years ago, the Alexander Technique has been used as a powerful tool for actors to integrate voice, speech and movement. At its heart is the conviction that we are perfectly designed to express an impulse with honesty. Through this psychophysical tool for body, breath and imagination, actors learn how to release habitual tension and instead bring freedom, poise and presence to their performance. This experiential class focuses on the technique’s principles and the art of self-direction using warm-up, monologue and partnering work, all designed to help you be comfortable in your own skin and create onstage intensity without tension. 
Prerequisite: Physical Approaches I or Theater Basics I (or equivalent experience). Must be 18+. Capacity: 12.

Sundays, November 11 – December 9 (no class November 25) | 6:30–9 p.m.
