Students tap into their body in Center Stage High School Musical Theater Program’s workshop
Alan Kopischke was interviewed by channel five for a workshop he did for high school theatre students through the FCPAC Centre Stage program.
“Your physical presence can make an immediate impact on the audience before they even hear you say a word,” says UW-Green Bay lecturer Alan Kopischke.
Kopischke, who teaches Acting, Movement for the Actor, Shakespeare, and Arts Management at the university, led the one-hour Zoom workshop Tuesday night.
“We’ll talk about the weight, rate, rhythm and size of movement and how that can change the quality of the movement. We’ll go through some other exercises to explore interesting psychological things that might affect the way you move or stand. By the end of the class, we’ll hope to have built another physical character that’s different from the way they physically move,” says Kopischke.
