“The ability to have an open heart and a willingness to dive into the depths of the human condition is the very foundation for our work and our ability to live moment to unknown moment within extraordinary circumstances.
We have to be willing to see, hear, feel, taste, understand and experience more than just our own small circle of experiences in order to live the vast highly complex life of characters in unimaginable pain, great struggle and overall high stake circumstances.
This is ultimately the ‘in’ to every character we will ever play/reveal/live.
Everyone has struggled.
Everyone has suffered.
Everyone has had trials and tribulations.
Everyone has a story.
Every story has a history that formulates who we are and how we move and function in life and what we strive to get, achieve, be and experience.
We have to understand that at our very core, we function from survival, love received, and love unreceived.
From there our story unfolds based on what life throws at us.
This is not just about our technique.
This is about humanity.
It is about our humanity.
And every human’s story has within it the worthiness to be witnessed simply because it is part of the essential fabric of this thing we all call ‘Life’.”
