Embodying Your Character

Mindfulness, Embodiment, and Drama > Drama


In this lesson, students will learn about energy centers that help embody a variety of characters for performance​.

Activity Notes

  • Embodying a character means that you use your body to become that person. How you use your hands, your body, and your voice gives your audience a lot of information.
  • Watch the video to see how different energy centers impact how your characters stand, move, and interact with other characters.

Artist Notes

  • Have fun and try to feel putting energy in each of the five centers. Don’t be embarrassed to practice in front of a mirror to get a real sense of what it looks like to embody different characters whether for theatre or for classroom presentations.
