Energy Theatre is a unique training for professional actors and performers that draws on Character Analysis and Vegetotherapy from W Reich’s Body Psychotherapy method. It can unblock the body and help people to be more inspired and creative. It enables people to connect with their emotions, feelings and sensations so that they can perform roles with truth and realism and at the same time benefit them on a personal level too. Now based in the East Midlands region of the UK, Energy Theatre helps people to reconnect with their bodies through grounding, breathing, bodywork and relaxation exercises. Students of Energy Theatre acquire heightened levels of rhythm, strength and balance on stage, release blocked energies and learn to transform any weaknesses and problems into powerful creative tools.
Energy Theatre training is also a great experience for people working in areas outside the performing arts field - such as health and psychiatry - to support their clients and to enrich their work with body psychotherapeutic exercises of Reichian work.
Amateur actors – and anyone who would like to learn more about themselves through using bodywork in a creative environment - will also gain through this training. Working together as a group, participants will have fun and become more creative through bodywork, relaxation, dance, movement and improvisation. Benefits include gaining new energy and optimism which can have real health benefits.
