Movement Theatre Studio- Lecoq Based Workshops

Pyramid of actorsMovement Theatre Studio is a NY based company that is dedicated to teaching LeCoq technique for the American Actor.  Their aim is to create a home for the teachings of Jacques Lecoq in New York.

MTS believes that there is no separation between the psychological and the physical actor. The most exciting performer is one who can engage their imagination fully while having a rigorously trained physical instrument through which these impulses can be dynamically expressed.

All full time faculty at MTS have trained at École International du Théàtre Jacques Lecoq, Paris.

They are currently offering 3 workshops/classes for FALL 2012 (listed below)
Classes range in price from $275-$395, and they are offering a 15% discount for those who register before September 14.
