Personal Crafting Work
Week Eight: Physical Practice (Part One)
Happy Wednesday! Welcome back to Acting Class Daily. Let’s dig in to this week’s personal crafting work - adding resources, recommendations, and troubleshooting tips inspired by the discoveries and challenges of EA teammates worldwide.
Physical Practice: The Taste of Touch
Going from the rules and expectations of your Daily Body into the permissions and possibilities of your Acting Instrument.
Do Nothing for 10 minutes lying on your back with open arms and legs.
Allow the “waterslide of breath” to carry in the experiences around you.
Released with an unapologetic sigh - the exhilaration of confession!
Spark the taste of touch with the playful wiggling of your fingers and toes.
Released with unapologetic SOUND - the exhilaration of confession!
Surrender to wherever the taste of touch takes you (floor, clothes, body, face, hair) Let it lead you as if you were riding a rollercoaster with your eyes closed.

Physical Practice: The Lazy, Sunday Morning Roll
Going from the taste of touch to the fearlessness of unexpected contact.
The world around you has become the largest, most comfortable bed.
Allow your arms to stretch out wide as you would if waking up to light pouring in through the shades.
Surrender to gravity as you roll into the taste of the unknown contact below.
Released with unapologetic SOUND - an instant ricochet off the experience.
Allow the roll to take you across the floor into the exhilarating, awkward, lonely, loud, subtle, silly, brave and always worthwhile tastes of the unknown around you.
