Motion Capture for Actors – Asha Jennings-Grant

Movement Director Asha Jennings-Grant will be leading a series of movement workshops that prepares the actor for performance work required in Motion Capture. Reinforced by her specialism in actor movement, Asha approaches this particular field from a movement and physical performance perspective. Her sessions will explore ways for the actor to become more receptive and attuned to their environment (considering equipment, fellow actors and the transition from actual to imagined space). This will be drawing attention to the body and learning how this can deeply inform the execution and quality of their physical performance as well as fulfilling the technical needs of the scenes.

The workshops are suitable for actors with Motion Capture experience, aspiring Mocappers, actors with movement experience and physical performers.

**Please note these sessions will not be skill-based (i.e. stage combat, stunt, sword fighting).**

There will be a Taster Workshop on Sunday 21st May, 12pm – 3pm

INTRODUCTORY PRICE: £30!!!

Venue: Greenwich Dance, Minor Hall, Royal Hill, London, SE10 8RE
