Vanessa Ewan in a movement class.

Wednesday, 3 December 2014

On 20th November, Central was delighted to help mark the release of Actor Movement: Expression of the Physical Being - a movement handbook for actors.

Written by Vanessa Ewan (Senior Lecturer on the BA Acting Course and Co-Course Leader of the MA/MFA in Movement: Directing and Teaching) and Debbie Green (Senior Lecturer on the BA Acting Course), Actor Movement provides a complete guide to the field, both in theory and in practice. The book was developed alongside the authors’ work at Central and is a textbook for the working actor, the student and all those who lead and witness movement for the actor, including movement tutors, movement directors and directors.

With its emphasis on developing confidence in the actor to make fully owned physical choices and a love of movement, this essential textbook - featuring exercises inspired by Laban and Lecoq - is ideal for those actors seeking to give their movement all the complexity and range possible for great acting.

The book is published by Bloomsbury and can be ordered online via their website. It is scheduled for release in the United States on 15th January 2015.
