INTRODUCTION TO SUZUKI WITH NIKKI PRZASNYSKI
The Suzuki Method is a form of physical actor training designed to allow the actor to be as eloquent and articulate physically as she is emotionally. Though originated by Tadashi Suzuki as a method to train his actors to embody western classics such as the Greeks and Shakespeare, Nikki's lineage of training stems from the work of teachers Robyn Hunt and Steven Pearson, who were among Mr. Suzuki’s original students. It incorporates Alexander technique, Laban movement, and Viewpoints for a training that will make you not only stronger physically, but also emotionally more at home in your own, unique, amazing body.
Nikki first began studying physical actor training in 2000 at the University of Washington. In 2002, she received a Mary Gates Research Grant, at the time rarely given in the field of performing arts, to study Physical Approaches to Acting and Directing. Since then, she has participated in workshops, drop-in sessions and intensives, and has used physical actor training with children and adults alike. Those ‘aha!’ moments of release, inner strength and physical wisdom that come with the training make it some of the most rewarding work she can imagine doing.
