   schema:reviewBody ""Movement: From Person to Actor to Character is a guide to fundamental movement concepts for actors, teachers, and directors. Mitchell synthesizes the common movement principles of ballet, modern dance, tai chi, yoga, and the Alexander Technique clearly and concisely so they can be taken easily from the classroom setting and applied to work on the stage. The illustrations provide the actor with basic knowledge of the human body's structure and function that can serve as the foundation for greater movement potential and a broader range of acting choices. Mitchell explores how breath, center, alignment, relaxation, sound, imagery, space, time, and weight can serve the actor as he or she works through the process of creating a character. Movement: From Person to Actor to Character includes exercises and projects designed to link physical and psychological expressive behaviors with acting and to enable actors to make the choices necessary to create vibrant and vulnerable characterizations. Mitchell also includes model character studies and journal entries as tools for the beginning acting student."--Jacket." ;
