Report: El Actor y los 4 elementos de la naturaleza en su arte (The Actor and the 4 Elements of Nature) Workshop

Billy Martin Mejía conducted his El Actor y los 4 elementos de la naturaleza en su arte (The Actor and the 4 Elements of Nature) workshop. For two (2) sessions, which took place at Teatro LATEA on Monday and Tuesday, March 9 and 10, 2015, and which was conducted in Spanish, he taught how an actor can utilize the natural elements (earth, fire, air, water) in one's acting, and how to find other sources of energy using psychophysical training, breathing exercises, and movement in order to add to one's interpretation.

Some of the feedback from the students are below.

• Excellent workshop. I have learned many new tools I can put into use as an actor.
• I am very satisfied with the workshop. We need more workshops of this caliber.
• Billy [Martin Mejía] is quite knowledgeable of the topic. 
• Billy [Martin Mejía] knows how to explain things well and give very practical examples.
• I wish the workshop was even longer so that we could cover more material.
• I would love to deepen my understanding of this topic.
• Definitely, this class of workshop is very necessary for the growth of an artist.
• I hope [HOLA] repeats this workshop in the future.
