Week Three: Growing Excellence
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!
ACTING INSTRUMENT; comprises the 5 areas of our humanity, of human behavior and experience: physical, vocal, emotional, psychological, imaginative/spiritual.
When we live in an Acting Instrument, we are freed from the rules of the Daily Body and caught by the possibilities of the moment.
When we live … our acting instrument plays the truth of what we know.
It allows truthful behavior to come out of the experiences of the moment.
The Elysium Aesthetic builds an instrument for the highest levels of our craft. More than behavior coming out of experience, we want an Acting Instrument that goes wherever the experience takes you, releasing whatever behavior is inspired.
We want an instrument that takes-in experiences without filter, causing behavior without apology.
An instrument strong enough and sensitive enough to allow anything the world is doing to push on our humanity and release truth.
That’s our target. We want to grow a fearless Acting Instrument.
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:
