Character Analysis
& Movement Psychology

Movement Psychology or ‘Character Analysis’ is the product of a 50 year study of human expression, conducted initially by Rudolph Laban in collaboration with William Carpenter - and completed by Yat Malmgren.

It offers a profound system for categorising and understanding human expression, which may be utilised by actors, directors, writers, creative thinkers - people who want to explore it in-depth, and learn how to use it to expand their capacity to transform. 

It was taught by Yat Malmgren and Christopher Fettes, co-founders of Drama Centre, London, to generations of actors.
