The Emotional Fluency Project for Performers
Artscape Youngplace in Toronto
Basic Emotional Fluency Workshop, Monday, May 13 – Friday May 17, 2019
Emotional Fluency in Action, Tuesday May 21 – Satruday May 25, 2019

(Registrants can sign up for both the Basic and the Emotional Fluency in Action workshops. If you attended a basic workshop in the past, you can sign up for the Emotional Fluency in Action workshop)

Laura Bond (CL5) will lead both workshops, accompanied by Tom Stroud (CL4) and Ines Buchli (CL2).

These workshops are the result of a two-year SSHRC grant. The research objectives of the project are to determine if the Emotional Effector Patterns (the basis of the BOS Method, Alba Emoting, and the Emotional Body methods) can provide the actor with a practical and effective methodology to consciously control the degree to which they engage in a process of identification or detachment from the character, monitor and regulate actor vulnerability in the creative process, and minimize post-performance stress. We also want to determine if the BOS effector patterns can provide the actor with an adaptable methodology to meet the specific emotional demands of a given style whether realistic, abstract, narrative or image based.

These particular workshops are designed specifically for experienced actors/performers and would not be a good match for non-performers.
