Russian theatre director and movement coach Andrei Droznin maybe best known for perfecting the mobility techniques taught in acting programs throughout the world. Interlochen alumnus Brendan Naylor (IAC 04) studied Droznin's techniques during three months spent at the Moscow Art Theatre School in Russia. After finishing his degree from Syracuse University, Naylor spent time assisting in on and off-Broadway productions before joining the Eugene O’Neill Theatre Center and National Theatre Institute.
Recently, Naylor returned to Interlochen to demonstrate and lead theatre students through the principles of alignment and balance as developed by Andrei Droznin.
Naylor's workshop focused on the importance of building strength, flexibility and the courage to trust yourself and your fellow actors through complex physical routines.
