“Acting is an art form of Self Discovery. Through each other, we discover ourselves. When we know what affects us, the character can live in us. Every action creates a reaction which determines the point of view. Acting is what we do about how we feel. Acting Is doing. Acting is living truthfully under imaginary circumstances. Through a process of exercises that teaches the actor to trust their instincts and impulses, to be present and In the moment, the actor learns to focus and to listen and respond truthfully, developing a heightened awareness . utilizing ones experience, imagination, research and intelligence, the truth is revealed.” – IRIS KLEIN
