Jo kelly's TO BE OR NOT TO ACT labs or workshops Los Angeles and Europe





A workshop that focusses on your roots. Your opinions. On why you act, sing or dance. What changes you want to create with your work. No technique, no theory. Just digging until you find your roots. The ones that will make you unstoppable!




Because of our education system, from a very young age we are taught to follow, listen, do what others do and learn from people who have the authority. All to be "well behaved" and controllable... With this mould for a start it is rare to come across people who stand on their own feet, too preoccupied to fit whatever mould they imagine is expected of them. The truth is, artistic expression is where the opposite is expected. The casting director and the director hope you will come in the room and be you, unique, grand, special. They don't hope that you are a clone of the actor they just met before you. 




Through various exercices, each participant will unroot their purpose, core-values and what violates them in an effort to determine how their natural gifts & essences can better serve and from then on never be able to walk away from it...

We will dig for your core values and purpose:

-Physically and emotionally 

-Through conversations

Our goal will ultimately be to perform totally abandoned to the moment, keeping our eyes on the ball ( purpose).

Bring a 2 min monologue that you would LOVE to explore but have never worked on before and don't prepare it or learn it. It can be in German or English.
