Melodrama Physical Theatre Workout
Join us for a physically theatrical workout to get you out of your head and into
your body. All levels welcome. Authenticity in a heightened and physically expressive
style. It is ideal for actors seeking to improve movement skills, physical theatre
artists needing a 'workout' and non-artists who want to sweat and have fun. This
is the only training of its type in Los Angeles.
Melodrama is the most expressive of Western theatre forms, closest to the theatrical
impulse, based in heightened physical gesture, high stakes, big emotion states,
the struggle of virtue and vice... to music. It is Artaud's "athlete of the emotions."
It's cathartic, powerful and FUN!
