LUCID NEWS

Back to School!

A fantastic summer break full of sunshine and swimming, croissant eating and reading novel after novel has come to its natural end.  Now autumn is upon us and that can mean only one thing... it's time to get back to the Lucid Body classroom.  





Movement Direction

I'm thrilled to be working this autumn with director Anna Jordan on the Italia Conti Third Year production of '3 Winters'


As with previous years, I'll be working with the actors as their Movement Director, helping to guide them into the bodies of characters many years older, with different physical abilities, living in different eras and under different circumstances.  It's my absolute joy to be working with Anna, whose work as a writer and director I greatly admire.

Winning Awards

CONGRATULATIONS TO LUPITA NYONG'O

 on winning the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress!

The whole Lucid Body collective is proud of you.


It's a special day knowing that Lucid Body and Fay Simpson played a part in helping Lupita prepare for her role in 12 Years A Slave.  Every day, we see our students engage in deep, connected, touching work.  We have the honour of working with talented actors all the time.  Many of them have gone on to, or are already working in, TV shows, Broadway or West End plays.  But, it's not often that one of them is so publicly lauded, so fully embraced by the artistic community.  

May this be the first of many...

Lucid Body Founder, Fay Simpson, was publicly honored last month by Lupita Nyong'o in her SAG Awards acceptance speech for Best Supporting Actress in the film '12 Years A Slave'.  
Lupita graciously thanked Fay for helping her "find the heart" of her character.  
Having studied Lucid Body at Yale Drama School for a year,  she then coached with Fay for her auditions and, later, preparation for her scenes in this blockbusting movie.  Fay did what Fay does - what Lucid Body always works to do - aided and supported Lupita in finding the Persona, Shadow and Heart of her character in order to create a layered, complex, truthful human being.
Let's all keep fingers crossed for Lupita at the Oscars next month!
