About the Event
Laban Technique derives from modern dance exploration however many actors and directors use Laban’s Eight Efforts to explore character in the body. They used it as a way to extend an actor’s movement vocabulary and ability to play characters physically or as we call it at The Playground, adding to your Actor's Tool Box. Laban's Eight Efforts help an actor both physically and emotionally identify and play characters who are different from themselves. This embodied work helps the actor in understanding internal impulse and in developing an expressive body that can make clean, precise choices. It also helps the actor create and maintain a strong physical instrument that will serve them throughout their training and future professional work.
