The craft of acting

I’ve been attending Kim Tobin’s class on the “craft of acting.” What a fascinating process. Getting to know myself in this way is a process of self-awareness that has parallels with meditation: respecting moment-to-moment flashes of emotion, the ebbs and flows of feelings we usually try to ignore or flatten. Allowing these energies to arise. Relaxing the conventions of polite society – and our fears – that have us keeping extreme emotions locked down so tightly we’re no longer aware of them. At least that’s my experience.
