CA 3250 - How the Body Talks
How does body movement reveal or conceal true intent? Humans appear to be “hard-wired” to assess, examine, and respond to the physical language of others. Although this process is often automatic or unconscious, people can learn to identify and employ the elements of physical rhetoric (posture, stance, bearing, expression, and gait) in conscious ways to persuade others. If acting is the “truthful” revelation of character, what can be learned through proven performance techniques to enhance one’s presentation of self in varied settings? This course helps students to become more informed readers of physical signs in others, more aware of their own habitual physical tendencies, and more able to present themselves authentically to others.
