"We train the actor to develop emotional truth through specific character choices which then enables the freedom necessary to be fully present and to take risks. Through the imagination and with thorough exploration of characterization that begins and ends with the text at hand, we provide the actor the tools to explore the experience of the character, in a deeper, specific and detailed way. We do not exploit our students’ own experience or emotional history. We believe that is a dangerous approach to the craft. The goal is to nurture the actor. To support the actors’ ability to find the character through research and to help create a character that is in service to the author and the script.”
- Deborah Aquila and Donna Morong
