‘LABAN’S Effort Actions’ were the theme of our Senior Theatre Masterclass on the evening of January 18th.
The session took place in the Dance Studio and was led by our new Director of Drama and Theatre, Oliver Pengelly.
Laban’s Effort Actions are a fantastic building block to movement in performance. Students started the masterclass with an exploration of leading with various parts of the body, before looking at the different actions and then applying them practically to monologues.
Next week’s Senior Theatre Masterclass will be on ‘Comic Improvisation’ with Alex Walker from The Cambridge Impronauts!
