The life of an actor can be filled with all sorts of pressure. The "daily hustle and grind" of working survival jobs, repeatedly bouncing back from self-judgement, career criticism, handling rejection, parenting, partnering, financial stresses, challenges of staying "relevant", pressure to be better, or as good as your last best performance while creating the next opportunity can be overwhelming. From time to time, this kind of scrutiny creeps into your subconscious affecting your ability to be present, feel empowered, stand out and deliver the performances you desire.
Are you ready to challenge yourself and take your work to the next level. Together we will explore the script, deep dive into your imagination and come up with dynamic discoveries - allowing you to make captivating character choices.
Learn to take care of your instrument and deliver vibrant performances and fully embody the role.
I teach techniques that guide actors to holistically embody the complex behavior of the characters given circumstances with vivid imagination, stamina, vitality and consent. Actors will also learn a self-care practice that allows them to disengage from the life of the characters traumatic circumstances, reset and reconnect to themselves.
Together, we will unpack the layers, go deep and reveal limitless possibilities.
I have an unconventional approach, which is steeped in years of studying human behavior, the craft of acting and holistic healing practices. I listen, ask questions, and challenge you to reconnect to the greatest version of you.
