The Delegation of the European Union to the United States welcomes Czech actress Miřenka Čechová, who will present her lecture "The Expressive Body" as part of the Delegation’s ongoing series Conversations in Culture on September 18, at 6 pm. During the lecture, Čechová will explore her special approach to movement for dance and the theatre. As an artist who integrates music, technology, visual arts and a variety of technical influences into her work, Čechová will explain how movement interacts and is influenced utilizing demonstrations of her work. The discussion will focus on the body as the actor’s instrument and how the many elements of movement (breath, joints, look, energy, impulse, voice, imagination, ideas, and emotions) are eloquently expressed through the body.
