Movement for Actors – TMA Workshop
Thursday, May 28, 9-10:50 a.m. in the Nelke
Marin Leggat, former BYU dance faculty, is a choreographer-director based in Washington DC and is going to teach a workshop for TMA students on Movement for Actors. Inspired by Laban Movement Analysis, Marin will be guiding workshop participants through series of movement and hands-on explorations. Learn how to use actors’ movement as a communication tool for storytelling and characterization. Great experience for all TMA students; especially directors, actors, and MDT performers. Come dressed ready to move freely!

World Premiere: Taken from her home to attend royal finishing school, Miri faces a harsh schoolmistress, fierce storms, and bandits, but soon discovers the power of friendship and a loving heart. Adapted from the story of New York Times bestselling author Shannon Hale. There will also be Lunch and Learns available for registration.
The cast and crew of BYU’s “Princess Academy” want to share the gift of reading with everyone. To help us with our goal, we are creating a mountain of books in the Harris Fine Arts Center (HFAC). We invite you to help our mountain grow by donating your favorite children books (new and gently used please!). After the show closes, all books will be donated to deserving children in the Provo School District. Books may be added to the donation bins in the HFAC, the HFAC box office, or the Marriott Center box office. Coming to see the show? Bring a book to the ticket office and receive an additional $2 off one child’s ticket price. (This offer is valid for Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday evening performances only. Excluding previous purchases.) For more information about the show, please go here: http://arts.byu.edu/princess-academy/.
