The physical acting training focuses on physical grounding and identification of the individual’s qualities.
The training places great emphasis on the development of each individual, which can be invaluable to improve yourself as an actor and physical performer.
Yorgos gives practical tools to explore/enrich existing qualities and release the restricting habits. The work applies to film work as it brings performers and actors to a grounded realistic place.
You are required to know some text that we can work on:A monologue that you know already or learn something new or come with a partner to work on a duo loge.
If you are unsure of what to work on, I recommend choosing text from Antigone of Sophocles. You can also come back with a monologue that we have already worked on and take it further.

After the success of the two-week residency last May, Physical Lab presents a week long intensive lab with a small ensemble to dwell deeper into the work and give more attention to each participant. The work includes physical exploration, grounding techniques, text through physicality as well as ensemble and solo physical improvisation to dwell deeper into ones's physicality and explore the essence of each individual (authenticity). Yorgos works with the exhilarating sense of freedom and release that performers experience when they dive inside the body. This grounding process assists performers to open up physically and emotionally, and discover their own qualities/essence. Yorgos identifies the performing qualities of the individual as well as acting/performing habits. He works differently with each actor/performer and gives practical tools to explore/enrich their qualities and release the restricting habits. The work applies to film work as it brings performers and actors to a grounded realistic place.
