PRANADRAMA (article first published : 2006-03-6)

“You want to act?” asks Pamela Tancsik. “As an actor, your body is your one and only instrument. To get to know your instrument it is necessary to explore the building blocks, which are your body, voice, your expressions, and emotions.”

Dr Pamela Tancsik is a trained Yoga teacher with a degree in Social Work and Art Therapy and a PhD in theatre history. An experienced performer with 25 years to her credit, she offers a course titled PranaDrama which will take place in the rehearsal room at OSCA every Monday.

“Acting and playing drama happens through Hatha Yoga techniques of pranayama (breathing) and asanas (series of postures),” says Pamela. “Modern and classical drama techniques such as the Stanislavsky Method or Forum Theatre (Augusto Boal) will help in exploring your unique acting talents and abilities as well as develop communication skills and self esteem. Staging a play at the end will be a fantastic bonus.”

The course takes place in the rehearsal room at OSCA (Opera Studio & Voice Academy at Jubilee Hall) every Monday from 18h15 to 19h45. Fee is R550 for eight sessions (R200 for students from other faculties). Registered students at OSCA free!! Those participating are advised to take along a blanket or mat and wear comfortable clothes.
