“What is most important to me is to transform the, ‘class’ into an ‘ensemble of artists,’ who come to build a bond of trust and end up feeling supported and challenged to take a risk. That risk involves allowing oneself, emotionally, to reveal and understand, more and more, personal truth. I use a variety of exercises to help the actor create honest, compelling behavior to serve the story being told.”
