The P3/East training is designed to help performers more consistently act on stage with an engaged body and imagination working as one. The practice offers: a combination and counterbalance of the physical rigor, precision, strength in power movements and “inner sensibility” of Tadashi Suzuki’s training with the delicate but still demanding requirements of balance and spaciousness in Shogo Ohta’s slow-tempo, and Hunt and Pearson’s own explorations in finding a clearer presence through breath, specificity, ki study, and silent narrative. These are unique to P3 training.
NYC Marymount Manhattan College
Pacific Performance Project/East (P3/East) is now offering a Physical Acting Intensive Workshop during the January 2018 Session, which will synthesize the techniques of Tadashi Suzuki, Shogo Ohta and modern dance with training methods more familiar to western performers, such as those of Stanislavski, Meisner and Alexander. Marymount Manhattan is pleased to welcome Robyn Hunt and J. Steven Pearson to its community, and we invite you to take advantage of this unique opportunity to study with these three master teachers.
