Various techniques of body dynamics including Mask Work, (truthful expression through character and neutral masks); Rasaboxes (discover emotional range in moment-to-moment monologue work based on ancient Sanskrit) and exercises of Chekov, Myerhold and others, are geared to help the actor gain awareness and confidence and strengthen characterization through the use of the exercises addressing free-form movement, ritual movement, head-body connection, character building and storytelling through movement, to provide students an enriched palette of tools for approaching fully realized character work.
