"If you risk nothing, you risk everything."
You hit false notes in your acting when you don't trust what is unfolding in a particular moment and try to make something happen rather than letting it happen. Each time you work with the text-truth, whether for the first time or the fiftieth, it's truly always for the first time or you could say for the NEW time.
To surf the waves of truth in acting is exhilarating and daring because you have to trust yourself, your partner and the circumstances. It does you, you don't do it. Let go of the known and you'll explore the vast creative currents of the unknown. Hold on to what you already know and you'll crash into the banks of mediocrity and predictability.
There is no in between or half measures in the Art of Not Acting. It is you as the actor living in self-trust, pushing the boundaries of what is known. With this comes a deep sense of fulfillment because you are taken on a wild, creative ride. I see it all the time in my classes.
"All you can do is be in the moment. When you try to
make something happen it never works."
"If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything."
I will show you, in what I call The Artist's Gym, how to develop inner artistic muscles that build remarkable trust and confidence in venturing forth in a creative exploration of text and truth that produces the most exciting, unpredictable and memorable Not Acting Artists.
"It was only when I realized how actors have the power to move people
that I decided to pursue acting as a career."
