“I feel much more balanced and calm”

Somatics Serving Actors' Needs

“Thank you Laura. As you know this workshop was very useful to me, and helped me and my colleagues to maintain a healthy body ‘flow’ during the rest of the performance period at Grusomhetens Teater. The whole philosophy of this technique is extremely valuable to me and helps me not to ‘panic’ during periods when my body feels trapped in tension.

It’s relief to know how I can help myself to a better body awareness through something as simple as this. After using the technique I also got some interesting feedback on my physical work on stage, which had a deeper quality to it. Maybe this is connected, maybe It’s coincidental, but anyhow, I feel much more balanced and calm having dealt with this work for at little while.”

— Maja Clementsen Hansen, performer with Grusomhetens Teater, Oslo Norway
