„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 with 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. The work provides a way to access inner sensations ripe for use in dramatic circumstances, and otherwise hard to stimulate…It improves the depth of the actors work and provides a stimulating series of physical questions to ask themselves which inspires their histrionic imaginations to greater heights than they knew before.“ – James Kemp

Malmgren’s method of character development is concerned with a technique for expressing the inner state of a character through movement…Yat Malmgren taught a number of famous actors including: Sean Connery, Anthony Hopkins, Colin Firth, Helen McCrory, Paul Bettany, John Simm.“ (Wikipedia)

„This work provides an accurate and complete way of describing human behavior and its dramatic representation, giving a practitioner the tools to transform their bodies and minds at will into the shape, form and thoughts of a new character, either subtly or profoundly.  It provides a way to create nuanced and detailed characterizations.“ – James Kemp
