The Character Analysis or Movement Psychology Work of YAT MALMGREN
Giles Foreman is delighted to be bringing the extraordinary Character Analysis or Movement Psychology work of Yat Malmgren and Rudolph Laban to Tbilisi.
The work of Yat Malmgren leads to a profound ability for the actor to transform both on an inner and outer level and is an invaluable tool for the actor who believes in character and wishes to be accurate and specific in their work. It is a profound study of human expression developed initially by Rudolph Laban over 50 years and completed by Yat Malmgren. It is the only extensive typology of human expression that we know of and comes complete with an extraordinary set of exercises to aid in those transformations. This works brings Stanislavski together with Laban and his amazing discovery of the fundamental rhythms that produce character. Laban believed you can tell who someone is and what they want, by the way they walk into a room!! It will change the way you view character and the world.
“A revolutionary but entirely practicable approach to our material. I still cannot do my job without it!”
