An actor needs flexibility and ease at one level combined with availability and responsiveness at the level of invention.

In this plenary session, Joan Schirle will share her work of 40+ years teaching actors and how the Alexander Technique is foundational to the programs of actor training at the Dell’Arte International School of Physical Theatre’s 3-year MFA and 1-year certificate programs.

She will discuss the relationship between the use of the actor vs. the use of the character, and how Alexander principles help actors analyze scenes, up level their scenic presence, and “play well with others”.

Dorothea Magonet will provide her workshop "Tuning the Performing Self" to those attending the Congress. In these interactive, practical and fun CL sessions for teachers and students, she will share ideas borne out of her longstanding teaching experience at the Royal Academy of Music, London, about how to enable students to work on themselves in order to set up their own best conditions for playing, practicing and performing.

She completed her training in London, in 1984. Since then she has worked with music students at the Royal Academy of Music, London. In the early 90s she has organized the first two International Conferences on Teaching Alexander Technique in Music Conservatoires, which continue to take place every three years.
