Classic film of pioneer of movement Veronica Sherborne teaching students.
Classic film by Veronica Sherborne, pioneer of the idea of dance and movement for handicapped children, in which a group of drama students at Bristol University learn the art of movement. They explore awareness of their own bodies, gravity, weight and interaction with others in expression of aggression, tenderness and trusting. Facial expressions are also explored. One aim is to give intending actors confidence and greater proficiency in movement. On a wider plane the training they receive may help improve their sensitivity to some aspects of non-verbal communication. Bristol University Drama Department.
This film was made in 1970, in black and white, so the film and sound quality is not to modern standards. This should not diminish its value.
