The Class is NOT about teaching craft and is not ment to be, or replace, acting, singing, creative writing, dance, music or visual art training. The primary goal is to decrease the false-self ( the self-conscious, defensive ego ) and the conscious and subconscious inhibiting interference that it creates and also to cultivate the True-Self ( the functional ego ) that fosters the release of our true, authentic potential and cultivates our long term artistic growth.
While we will be using:
- Vocal work ( acting, singing, writing and pre-verbal exercises)
- Dramatic and Psychological exercises and improvisation
- Movement exercises and techniques
- Rhythm techniques and percussion exercises
- Creative and experimental composition exercises
They will all be designed and utilized to promote the primary goal of the cultivation of that elusive something that exists beyond craft and technique.
Actors, Dancers and elite athletes call it the “The Zone“, Jazz pioneer Miles Davis called it “The Space“, Mozart called it “Being with God“, during the Renaissance Italians called it having “Grazia” (Grace), In Buddhism it’s “Satori“, to Michelangelo “Intelleto” and Psychologist Mihály Csíkszentmihályi, who has been recognized for his work in this area, named it “Being in Flow“.
Every spiritual and life philosophy method for the development of human potential has it’s own variation of naming, investigating and separating the inhibiting, self-clinging ego from the deeper creative self in order to release full, genuine potential for life and artistry. The workshops are designed to foster this authentic and creative way of being with your art and with your world that incorporates:
- Full immersion in the moment with an energized, clear, razor sharp focus
- Complete attachment with our authentic preconscious (and our true creative and performing potential).
- Action merges with awareness, is intensely rewarding and effortlessness and all self- consciousness dissolves.
- In the action the artist is functioning at their Full Creative & Performance Potential.
- Class Goals include:
- find our own unique ways to access and develop that “place” where we release our true abilities whether they be in performing, compositional or visual arts.
- develop potential for immediacy, conviction and authenticity.
- increase body awareness and comfortability with our physical well being
- improve ability to spontaneously follow dramatic, emotional, and physical action to enhance and maximize “in the moment” authenticity.
- balance, breath and rhythm work to develop a deeper sense of ourselves and awareness of our presence and influence on the world around us.
