Lucid Body Trainees

Antonia SuarezAntonio Edwards Suarez

– As an actor has worked on Broadway, off B’way, several regional theaters, film and television. Is currently on Faculty at Marymount Manhattan College and Hunter College. Since studying with Fay Simson, I am applying the Lucid Body work not only to my acting but recently began to offer the work to my undergrad students. Lucid Body is how I begin every acting class I take or teach. I have seen how it gradually encourages the student to not only be more aware of their physical and emotional instrument but to take charge of their warm-up process in and out of the classroom. BFA – Marymount Manhattan College; MFA – ART/MXAT at Harvard University. Member of the Actors Center Workshop Company

Prather Rehm began as a Lucid Body student at Michael Howard Studios’ summer and year conservatories. She began assisting Fay in 2004 working at Michael Howard Studios, Marymount Manhattan College, the Ensemble Studio Theatre and The Actors Center. Prather has worked professionally with Impact Theatre (Intermission, Birdgirl) and has directed high school theatre students using the Lucid Body basics and tools for character development. The technique is integral in Prather’s own work as an actor; it allows her to trust her physical and emotional impulses as well as to create characters that test her range, yet are rooted in truth and start with the self. She is currently working on her MFA in Acting at The Actors Studio at Pace University.
