When Does the Actor Become An Artist

By Peter Frisch on Aug 22, 2018 at 10:39 PM in Acting Tidbits
  • When that actor develops an ongoing curiosity about the ways of the world and its human inhabitants.
  • When that actor is steeped in understanding through psychology, and absorbs alternate world views through philosophy.
  • When that actor discovers the connection between movements in the arts and the historical and cultural environments that spawned those movements.
  • When that actor has something to say about the human condition and a need to communicate same.

So leave behind your routines just occasionally: put down the trades, stop checking your voicemail, take a pass on a commercial audition. Yes, skip a casting director workshop and instead, visit a museum, the Symphony, take a class about Joyce (James, that is). Spend a week in San Francisco, Santa Fe or Nantucket. Get out of yourself and indulge in a life’s finer treasures.







Testimonials

“The experience that Peter facilitated for all of us became a foundation for my acting and personal growth in a very profound way. It was magical and quite revolutionary, and having worked with Peter in many other classes since then, I am not surprised any more. Everything that Peter does has a touch of magic and I am profoundly grateful for having the privilege to experience it."
