Move That Monster

Joanne Latimer : NightShift Theatre

SEMINAR: by Joanne Latimer

This class will provide practical strategies to help actors create the physical life of a non-human character.  Using some basic choices about the creature as a starting point, actors will come away with tools for building a fully developed monster with its own unique body language.
