Lucid Body techniques will help you take your acting to the next level

Lucid Body technique is a physical theater practice that focuses on integrating the mind and body in order to create dynamic and expressive performances. Developed by Fay Simpson, the holistic acting is a way of acting that is a benefit to the mind and body, as opposed to a drain on the physical and mental form. It is based on the idea that self-knowledge is the number one focus to your acting. Lucid Body is a psych-physical process that can offer an actor the building blocks of a new language to further develop a character through diagnosis and full embodiment. A process of self introspection and exploration that will help you change your emotional and physical habits, and expand your acting potential.

One of the key components of the Lucid Body technique is the concept of layers to become lucid & neutral mask. Through a series of exercises, performers learn to cultivate this state of lucidity in order to more fully embody their characters and bring their performances to life.
