Teaching: City College of New York

Tomorrow and Wednesday I'll be substitute teaching for Suzi Takahashi's "Body Movement" class. This is a class for actors and non-actors alike interested in exploring physical expression through a theatre-history context, and I always enjoy my time spent in it. It's a special treat to have two days in which to work with the class, because it means I'll be able to assign the observational "homework" we use in In Bocca al Lupo. The students, having had a cursory lesson in the Commedia dell'Arte archetypes, will bring into the second class their personal observations of people and construct a character around them. It's great integration, and great fun.
