THE CREATIVE TRIBE (The Meaning Of Ensemble)

“You will always ‘know’ your creative tribe…
When you can live your most authentic genuine Self in each other’s presence.
You will never feel alone.
And never walk away feeling lonely.
There will always be a willing generosity of Spirit.
There will always be an undeniable human to human connection. 
There will always be a wanting to share something deep and real.
There are many factors that magnetize us to that creative tribe.

There is THE LOVE OF ART. 
There is THE GIFT AND BLESSING OF TALENT.
There is THE JOY OF CREATION.
There is THE HUNGER FOR EXPLORATION.
There is THE FEARLESSNESS OF STRUGGLE.
There is THE EXCITEMENT OF DISCOVERY.
There is THE PASSION FOR REVEALING.
There is THE OPENNESS FOR EXPRESSION.
There is THE DESIRE FOR INVESTIGATION THAT STIMULATES UNDERSTANDING, EMPATHY AND COMPASSION.
There is THE UNQUENCHED THIRST OF  UNCEASING CURIOSITY.
And there is THE DELICIOUS APPETITE FOR TRANSFORMATIONAL STORY(living)TELLING.
And we have to understand…
It is sometimes through the darkest of moments…
And most inexplicable of circumstances…
That guide us…
Or lead us…
To that creative tribe.
Those same circumstances…
That we may think are causing us to crumble…
And break our heart and Spirit…
Are the same circumstances…
That actually break our heart open…
And allow our Spirit…
To be In-Spirited (inspired)…
Opening our Mind, Body & Soul…
And awakening us to something greater than we could have ever imagined.
Those same circumstances very often pave the path to our greatest purpose…
Our greatest potential…
All human beings at some point…
Will own some story of hardship.
That is part of the human experience.
But within hardship also lives an individual story…
A universal story…
Of how hardship paved an unexpected path to perseverance, growth, inner-strength, compassion, insight, understanding, creative inspiration and connection with others who can gather with each other and say:
Yes, I know. Me as well. I see you. I understand. Let’s not let it be in vain. Let’s do something remarkable with it all!‘.
And so we find our tribe.
Or our tribe finds us.
A tribe that meets through the most unlikely…
And yet, likely, of circumstances.
A tribe that is generous in knowledge, creativity, heart, compassion, passion, love, support, kinship, responsibility, accountability, creativity, talent & Spirit.
And because of those circumstances…
We RECOGNIZE each other.
We SEE each other.
We UNDERSTAND each other.
We CARE about each other.
We SUPPORT each other.
And, yes…
We LOVE each other…
From one artist to another…
From one actor to another…
From one human to another.
That is the magic of an ENSEMBLE!
Together we LEARN.
Together we EXPLORE.
Together we DISCOVER.
Together we GROW.
Together we EXPAND.
Together we STRUGGLE.
Together we BREAK-THROUGH.
Together we SUCCEED.
Together we SHARE.
Together we GIVE.
Together we MAKE ART.
Together we TELL & LIVE STORIES.
Together we REVEAL THE HUMAN CONDITION.
And TOGETHER we hold onto the fact…
That once we make it out of the fire…
There will be…
And is…
BEAUTY WITHIN THE ASHES…
That result in our life’s greatest contributions!”

Meet The  MC² Actors Studio International Ensemble! (February 2021) #ActorTribe

From The MC² Actors Studio 
Masterclass:

“Dear Actor…

Dear Artist…

You will ‘know’ your creative tribe…

When you can live your most authentic genuine Self in each other’s presence…

You will never feel ‘alone’ in the work…

And you will never walk away feeling lonely…

There will always be a willing generosity of Spirit…

There will always be an undeniable human to human energetic sharing…

There will always be a connection…

There will always be a wanting to give…

And as we have seen with what is going on in our world today…

Sometimes it is through the darkest of moments…

And sometimes it is through the most inexplicable of circumstances…

That guide us…

That lead us…

Or that detour us…

To that tribe…

Those same circumstances…

That we may think are causing us to crumble…

Or break our hearts…

And our Spirit…

Are the same circumstances…

That actually break our hearts open…

And allow our Spirit…

To be IN-Spirited (inspired)…

Opening our mind, body and soul…

And awakening us to something greater than we could have ever imagined…

Those same circumstances that begin to help lead the path to our greatest purpose…

Our greatest potential…

And so we find our tribe…

Or our tribe finds us…

A tribe that meets through the most unlikely…

And yet, likely, of circumstances…

A tribe that is generous in knowledge, skill, creativity, heart, compassion, passion, love, support, kinship, responsibility, accountability, creativity, talent and Spirit…

As we continue to walk our path as artists together…

We must remember to remain students of life…

We have to be mindful to never allow the ego to rob us of the growth our work and life itself has to offer us… 

There is an inexplicable creative currency in growth.. 

Get ‘paid’ in growth…

Keep learning…

We must continue to hold ourselves to the same demands that our art form demands…

Understand that that demand is what keeps us all striving to be and do our absolute very best…

As artists…

As actors…

We must continue to strive, discover and walk toward our very own excellence…

And run like hell from mediocrity…

We must continue to work hard on the path toward all of our artistic dreams…

And know in our heart of hearts…

That all the sweat equity we put into our work and dreams…

Will indeed pay off…

And so we do so together…

We do the work…

As our very own actor tribe…

As an ensemble…

And we continue to get ‘paid’ by all of our growth…

Because we love the work…

And because we simply want to!”

Much Love,
