Sexuality For Actors – Sexual Embodiment For Stage & Screen
Maree has been facilitating Embodiment practices and coaching actors since 2007. Embodiment For Actors offers a range of courses and workshops, designed to awaken energy flow, encourage intuitive impulses and develop dynamic screen presence.
Maree’s powerful Embodiment For Actor process utilises a range of embodiment practices to help actors to gain emotional access to the subconscious through the body, breath, sound and senses.
The process utilises powerful somatic techniques, sensory, sound, archetypes and breath work practices to ignite organic impulse responses, allowing the actor to achieve a freedom of expression through the physical instrument.
Actors must be able to access a wide range of archetypes to be able to create a fully embodied character. The Embodiment process allows the actor to work safely with the subconscious (shadow self), repressed and suppressed archetypes. Conscious communication and emotional support is offered for all students.
