ABOUT MARGOLIS METHOD
Margolis Method has been developed over the last thirty years by Kari Margolis and has achieved international recognition as a methodology for empowering theatre artists to own their craft. Margolis Method takes all the mystery out of acting by offering tangible, practicable exercises that allow the actor to build and hone their skills like a true craftsperson.
Margolis Method organically synthesizes the vital connections between muscular and vocal expression and merges the skill sets of acting, directing and playwriting to build what we call the "Actor Warrior."
Margolis Method is not an aesthetic but a comprehensive series of highly theatrical exercises based on the universal principles of physics and communication. Training in the Method strengthens theatre artists in any theatrical style or aesthetic, ranging from abstract experimental to linear text-based plays. Students will be able to take with them practicable exercises and deep insights into new ways of looking at theatre.
Founder Kari Margolis drew early research inspiration from the philosophies and work of such artists as Etienne Decroux, Jerzy Grotowski and Bertolt Brecht. The synthesis of such philosophies gave her the foundation for what she considers true theatre artistry -- the ability to tap into and shape one's personal visceral impulses in a way that transforms them into universal ideas that can reach the most diverse of audiences.
