The study of human expression has the potential to unite the traditionally disparate disciplines of movement, voice and acting in a unified method of training.
MICHAEL LUGERING
The actor in training should begin focusing not on what "is" but rather what "ought" or "could" be if the conditions are right.
MICHAEL LUGERING
Integration is predicated on physical action, occurs through physical action and is foundationally a study of physical action.
MICHAEL LUGERING
I believe that meaning and understanding emerge from our visceral connection to our bodies.
MICHAEL LUGERING
A detailed and precise physical vocabulary lies at the very heart of any serious technique.
MICHAEL LUGERING
The actor's primary responsibility is not merely to live truthfully in imaginary circumstances, but also to live artfully in imaginary circumstances.
MICHAEL LUGERING
The goal is to develop a specific set of physical resources that lead, prompt and motivate expressive action.
MICHAEL LUGERING
The language of the body is specific and concrete and of great practial use to the actor.

    “The Expressive Actor work is truly unique. I’ve been exposed to range of movement methodologies. I didn’t know I could still be surprised. This work is insightful and truly integrated. Experiencing and embodying the work allowed me to unlock my voice and new aspects of somatic understanding. The Expressive Actor philosophy is built on foundation of solid research into how the mind and body work together; this is not flash-in-the-pan methodology. Just as the Viewpoints gives language to the basic building blocks of working in space and time, the Expressive Actor work provides a vocabulary for describing the building blocks of action and human communication. This is good stuff. As scholarships go, the one offered by The Expressive Actor training is extremely generous. The value of the training is high and I would challenge you to find a better bang for your buck, even at the full price. As an emerging scholar, I cannot afford the premium prices of most certification and training programs. It was liberating to train and learn at relatively low financial risk, broadening my pedagogical skill set, as well as my personal practice. Michael is a wonderful host and helped all the participants to feel welcomed and included.”

    "I went to the Expressive Actor workshop with an interest in broadening my language for interdisciplinary work with actors. I am a singer/dancer who works mostly with actors in voice and speech. While I consider myself to be well versed in interdisciplinary work, I came away with many immediately implementable practices and, most importantly, a thirst for further exploration in the classroom and in my own practice. Through the Expressive Actor Workshop, Michael Lugering offers an opportunity for integrative practitioners to explore the great desire for specificity of language and specificity of practice. As a group we considered the means by which actors can respond to impulses with a united body, breath and voice first experientially and then through discussion. Michael created a space for intensive work in his own fields of study followed by an engaging and open space to discuss and combine ideas. Michael's work offers very practical and easily implementable modules that bring an actor's desire to express first through free movement in their body and consequently through their breath and finally through an integrated body and voice. His workshop creates space to discover, rediscover, or sharpen a personal, embodied connection to impulses and is an excellent oppotunity for teachers and actors to come together to explore actor training as a whole.
