Abstract

The subject area of this research is the therapeutic implication of physical theatre training on a client's journey towards living in accordance with their internal judgment and motivations. The purpose of this study was to determine how healthy adults without a previous history of mental illness respond to brief physical acting training workshops. The intention was to see if the workshop participants experience an increase in their internal locus of control and attention regulation abilities. In this research paper, eight participants' experiences of physical theatre training techniques are described and analyzed. The workshops succeeded in helping the participants heighten their physical and emotional awareness in relation to their internal and external awareness of their environments and interpersonal relationships. The participants also learned about ways in which reactions and actions affect the way they interact with others and how they feel about themselves, helping them realize they have the power to choose what they focus on in their lives
