Lucid Body Basic I
The newest acting technique that is used in Hollywood by many of the latest Oscar winners. You now have the unique opportunity – to discover and apply this knowledge in Berlin! You will learn how to get prepared for any casting and how to lead yourself, so you could feel confident without director’s guidance. Learn «Lucid Body» from its core or go into the depth of your attainments of the Lucid Body basic elements. Working with diversified chakra energy, that lies in the foundation of our motivations, and Karl G. Jung “Psychoanalysis» ( Persona, Shadow, Child need) will help you to develop your characters and bring them to the stage in the most authentic way.
I loved the "Lucid Body Advanced" workshop and am greatful to have been part of it; from a personal point of view, but also as an actor working on my craft. Monika's clear instructions helped to find freedom, playfulness and depth in the character of Blanche, who I was working on. The organisation by Viktoria and the spacious, wooden studio provided the room to unfurl. Through the intense work I was able to find my own Blanche rather than copying something someone else has done before. To me that's Lucid Body! Surprising myself!
Die Arbeit mit Monika ist einzigartig und macht großen Spaß. Sie lehrt Lucid Body mit solch einer Selbstverständlichkeit und Energie, dass ich nicht anders kann, als mich mitziehen zu lassen. Der Charakter meiner Figur floss förmlich durch mich durch und aus mir heraus. Meine eigenen Energiezentren wurden so stark aktiviert, dass ich auch in meinem privaten Leben eine fundamentalen Öffnung und Verbindung zu anderen Menschen und Themen erfuhr. Einfach großartig!
Lucid Body Basic II
The next step of The Lucid Body technique contains work with archetypes, that were taken from Karl Jung’s «Psychoanalysis».
Using these archetypes we will develop different and complex characters.
Archetypes, ancestors, as well as our genetics – are the elements, around which our character's story is being played with our motivations and actions.
This is the kind of work on which we are building our creative journey – to go into the very depth of a character - from classic ones to modern movies and tv series (Game of Thrones/ True Detective/ The Avengers etc.).
What is the possible way – to stay authentic in roles, which seem to be so far away from our nowadays life?
The Lucid Body workshop I attended through POINT was a fantastic opportunity to work along side other professional actors under the tuition of one the technique's most sought-after coaches. It was also affordable and the group size was kept minimal giving each artist the required attention. I look forward to the next one!
The Lucid Body technique shows a very deep way to get into a character. Monika Gossmann is a wonderful and inspiring teacher where you can feel the passion she has for acting and creating a unique character. I highly recommend her workshops as it was for me a complete change how to work on roles. It makes you much more free and creative.
