BREATHE and ACT
Boxing - Yoga - Acting
Workshop inspired by the Stanislavskij - Strasberg's Method and the Antonin Artaud's works and linked to Yoga practice and Boxing training.
Two far away activities, but complementary, beneficial to each other towards the development of the actor as a professional and as a person.
Designed for actors, aspiring actors, directors, choreographers and performers tout court.
Here we break down mental barriers, we knock down the wall between teachers and students: experimenting together, working together.
It's easy to learn, hard to forget and will dramatically improve your ability to perform.

Ferocity - Fragility

Boxing is theater training.
Obstinacy to win and to reach the goals.
Boxing dance is physical and mental improvisation.
Improvise and manage unforeseen situations.
Yoga and Acting
We combine breathing Yoga techniques (Pranayama) and meditation with Stanislavskij - Strasberg theater techniques (sensory work, dreams, communication techniques, improvisations).
The synergy between Yoga and Stanislavskij - Strasberg Method works on fears and mental blocks, transforms the "weaknesses" into a communicative force and creates healthy leadership.
Yoga is the evolution of consciousness.
Union between body, mind and spirit.
Full and free expression of one's creative potential.
Accept yourself and others.
