SEXUALITY ON SCREEN*

Co-facilitated by Kim Farrant and Michael Holt

kim-and-michael
Embodied sexuality in the actor and therefore in the character, creates charisma and that special “it factor” that books gigs and creates stars.

Course includes:
Scene work (not necessarily sex scenes but scenes that require embodied sexuality)
Movement and vocal exercises that move sexual energy and explore masculine and feminine energies and how to create polarity within ones self and with a scene partner (and therefore sexual chemistry)
Unique safe tools that help you move through limiting beliefs, conditioning and blocked emotions around your sexuality and body
Techniques to help you set healthy boundaries when discussing with agents, directors, producers, other actors and crew – sex scenes and nudity
Specific tools for blocking these scenes safely with other actors and directors so that you then have more freedom to fully explore the sexuality required for the scene. This course is about empowering the actor to embody their birth right to their sexual energy and sensuality which can then be used in service of character
