Articles about the changing face of acting:
“You are what you do repeatedly.
So your excellence isn’t an act, it’s a habit."
ACTING, just like any other art form,
is constantly changing...growing in new directions.
Today's professional actor must be fearless
and infinitely creative to work in their field.
From the worldwide movement-based theatre
trend to psychological, fantasy, and science
fiction films, a gigantic imagination, ability to
launch oneself bravely into whatever creative
vision a director has, and the developed skills
to do so is absolutely REQUIRED now.
But where is the training?
Or, if it was found, and the artist was developed ...
why does that training suddenly stop?
A dancer takes classes every day.
A singer practices scales every day.
A writer must write every day.
But an actor somehow completes their training
and is now "actor"? This does not make sense.
Actors also need to train daily and challenge themselves not only to stay electric and viable
for work, but to feed their minds and spirits.
