Marsha Becker is an actor, acting teacher, playwright and a M.AmSAT certified teacher of the Alexander Technique. She wrote and continues to perform her one-woman show Whispers, which is based upon interviews with more than one hundred battered women. Whispers has been performed in New York City’s – HERE, The Women’s Project, Dixon Place Theatre and The Public. In addition, it has been performed in Baltimore’s Theatre Project and premiered locally at the Everyman Theatre as a benefit performance for House of Ruth Maryland, a domestic violence center located in Baltimore. The piece has toured college and university campuses, prisons, and domestic violence centers. Primarily interested in social action issues, she continues to seek theatrical opportunities to shed stereotypes, address political problems while seeking to provide a voice to those who might otherwise be silenced.
She has an active and diverse Alexander practice in the Towson/Baltimore region. Her studio has been approved and sanctioned by Towson University’s legal department as a “safe environment” which affords her the opportunity to offer the occasional Independent Study for the artist who wants to deepen the exploration between the Technique and performance, or to develop acting technique. In addition to her private practice she holds Alexander workshops for artists, business professionals and for residents of Senior/Living: Independent and Assisted. She completed the Post Certification in the Alexander Technique at ATNYC with John Nicholls.
