"I am a strong believer that even a little knowledge of the work can go a long way, and that anyone should be able to take something from the classes which they could immediately apply to their work on stage or off, in front of the camera or behind, or for that matter as a member of an audience watching actors and drama.  

At the heart of the work is the concept that we think with our bodies.  

That our bodies are revelatory of our inner workings, our psyche, of our thoughts and feelings.  Therefore if we could learn to harness and manifest our inner sensations and in a precise way control and express them through our bodies we would be able to share every inner desire, want, thought or emotion wtih a watching audience.  And in turn that audience would be able to 'read' our thoughts, to 'read' our character and be thoroughly engaged in our dramatic lives." - James Kemp
