Our calling as Artists is to be who we are. To unpack all that’s within. The bright and beautiful as well as the dark and confusing. Deep down we have an innate hunger to bring all of who we are into the light.
We tend to sidestep our darker aspects. We skirt past the sources of our pain, guilt, shame, and frustration. We reside in judgment and hide these wounded parts, distancing us from our humanity.
It can be a disarming task to look at our “ugly” parts, but when we do with compassion, understanding and a willingness to play, creative freedom takes hold.
A different kind of Trust is born.
The shackles of “right” and “wrong” fall away. We let go of the need to label ourselves “good” and accept our flaws and strengths. The wounds we were once so afraid to expose become gifts that free us as actors, writers and directors. They become our “Beautiful Scars”.
In this class you’ll explore your “strengths” and “weaknesses.” Taking this kind of risk brings change and grace. Our work then becomes transformative within us and for those around us.
As a part of your prep for “Beautiful Scars” ask yourself which of these you might use to describe who you are.
