The Stella Adler Studio Physical Theatre Intensive is part of the Harold Clurman Center for New Works in Movement and Dance Theatre, and is designed especially for the physically creative performer.
The Physical Theatre Intensive program offers five weeks of immersion in intensive physical theatre and movement training with a strong focus on devising original work.
Students study a variety of influential techniques taught by the studio’s world-class movement faculty. The program serves a select group of actors, dancers, choreographers, and directors. In addition to classes, students participate in two components: Autonomy- an ensemble-driven devising process with no director, and Project- a collaboration with a TBA choreographer/director to devise a new work from the ground up. Both components culminate in performances in the studio’s black box theater at the completion of the intensive.
Classes: Image Work, Impulse and Structure, Physical Text, Sourcework, Modern Dance, Lucid Body Technique, Mime, Neutral Mask, Voice and Speech, Private Tutorial and Autonomy (Creating Original Work)
Admission to the Physical Theatre Intensive is by entrance interview with the Head-of-Movement. Applicants must be 18 years of age or older.
