Post-Performance Blues and Pre-Performance Jitters:
A Balancing Act


Learn how to find emotional balance and true closure after the end of a show. This workshop will assist participants to learn how to keep the character’s strength, protect integrity when playing negative personalities, say goodbye to a character, re-balance the inner self and keep creative balance and energy throughout the roller coaster of a performing artist’s life.
Emmanuelle Chaulet will lead an introductory workshop based on her book A BALANCING ACT.

Is this technique similar to alexander's?

A BALANCING ACT/ BALANCE YOUR ACT Blog: said...

It actually is quite different, although Alexander technique does cover relaxation, movement and the body/mind connection, this goes much further into the energy realm, with the understanding and managing of the chakras and the aura and other elements of the energetic system.
It bridges the inside-out/ outside-in approaches and gives actors tools to go deeper / higher into the creative state as well as a method to rebalance after performance.
