“I was challenged and inspired not only to build the inner life of a character through specific exploration of the body, but also to experience my own inner life more deeply. The incredibly masterful teachers and the nurturing, supportive environment of the studio gave me the courage to abandon text and learn to speak through movement.” – Lauren Patten (Chicago, IL)
“(The Physical Theater Intensive) is a great way to build a trust within yourself and with the people you work with in the program. You’ll not only move better on the stage, but you’ll move better in the world.” - S. Nicole Roberts
