During the Howard Fine Master Class I realised I was approaching the work from a very cerebral place. In order to rise to the high stakes of the play I found myself pushing and overcompensating. There was a lot of tension during my first run both physically and vocally. I was rushing ahead in moments; I was not present. It was through working with Barbara that I learnt to reconnect to my breath. Her subtle but powerful adjustments and realignment of my body helped me almost immediately connect moment to moment. I found so much freedom and spontaneity in my work and simply allowed myself to let go and trust I was enough. I experienced some major breakthroughs in my acting and it was through the Alexander Technique and Barbara’s meticulous work I was able to access these liberating places!
