The Presence of a Performer

WORKSHOP for actors and musicians, who work in theatre, conducted by Jan Ferslev.

The workshop concentrates on how to control the body and the voice. Through simple exercises, making physical and vocal actions, the participants learn how to focus on details in each small fragment of their score. These, put together in a fixed sequence, create the basis for stage presence.
