Fundamentals

 

Unlock the unique language of the emotions through PEM. The fundamentals term class will take you through PEM’s 6 emotional triggers and explores the six principles of PEM acting. You will clarify  your instrument and gain mastery over your craft

FUNDAMENTALS 1

Fundamentals I introduces basic techniques of accessing three of the basic emotions: Aggression, Happiness and Grief. It shows you how to activate facial expressions and their biological triggers.

This will give you a clear understanding of how the physical access to emotions can take any actor beyond their personal experiences, without recourse to personal trauma or creating disturbing imaginary scenarios

The Class will also focus on the first three fundamental Physical Principals of PEM: Permeability, Separation of Means and Action/Reaction. These principles exist in any great acting performance. 

FUNDAMENTALS 2

Fundamentals 2 builds on Fundamentals 1 and introduces the Biological Triggers for the other three Basic Emotions: Lust, Fear and Revulsion. It will deepen your ability to use physical emotions in action and language

New exercises will be introduced to work through blockages that may arise from the last three emotional triggers. Mixed Emotions and Derived Emotions will be touched on to give an insight into the fast flexibility of PEM and how it can give you craft that is not limited to your personal experience.

The class will also introduce exercises to train the three fundamental Energetic Principles of PEM: Presence, Tension (charge between two or more bodies) and Flow. Again, these three principles are evident in every great performance and ensemble.

*Must  complete Fundamentals 1 before beginning this class*
