Covid 19

Well here we are in the midst of a global pandemic.  Our worlds are upside down.  And our systems are responding in all their ways - with shock, fear, humour, optimism, and every other reaction you can imagine.

The Lucid Body community has done all it can to adapt the work to be able to provide support, expansion, creative flow and balance in these wild times.  There are a host of classes online streaming out of London, New York and Rio de Janeiro.  Some are free offerings, some are donation based, some are sliding scale.  See links on our Classes/ Workshops Page.

Wishing you all peace and growth in this period of great change.

 
Expansion

With new teachers recently graduated, we now have teachers offering classes in London, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Sao Paolo, Mexico City, Tokyo, Lisbon, Madrid, Berlin, Moscow and Toulouse.


If you want to join this wave of Lucid Body around the world, you can find more information about teacher training programs, requirements, and talk to someone about what it entails HERE  A new program is scheduled to begin in August 2020! ** This program has now been delayed to start in January 2021 **



Intimacy

In an expansion from the usual Lucid Body work, I have begun studying the process of Intimacy Coordination with the incomparable Ita O'Brien.  Now a Level 3 Intimacy on Set Coordinator in training, I am thrilled to be incorporating this vital work into what I am able to offer.  For more information on Intimacy on Set and industry guidelines for best practice, click HERE

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!
