Week Six: The Road To Elysium
Happy Tuesday! Welcome back to Acting Class Daily. We’re taking our weekly work further with access to my handwritten notes for each audio chapter, the glossary gigantum and … a new nominee for our digital wall.
Have a question about a phrase you’ve heard? Let us know and we’ll translate!
ELYSIUM; the Ancient Greek notion of paradise, and the finish line of our work.
The Greeks believed that paradise was reserved for those who earned it. Happy heroes who got to spend eternity working on what they loved, with the people they loved, where they most loved working.
And that’s what we want as actors.
Being our best artistic self. Being surrounded by the best teammates. Loving the moment.
Everything we do in our training, muscle-building, and perspective-shaping builds the habits and instincts to make that level of meaningful success inevitable.
We had a tradition of capturing quotes on the Elysium walls. The torch has now been passed to the digital realm. Here’s this week’s nominee … and the .GIF it inspires:
