This is the biggest opportunity for you as an actor in 2022

As actors, you may think that the biggest opportunity for you in 2022 is to be lucky and book more work, have a better agent or make more money. And in order to get that, you might have tried to find a better team, work with well-known teachers or hone in on your technique to get ready. However if you rely on all those external things instead of taking care of your instrument, you as an actor may disappear and won’t be able to show up for any piece of the puzzle as the full version of yourself.


Instead, you can try to understand what has happened in the last 2 years and what is happening in the acting industry now with the pandemic, where everything is unpredictable: shootings are canceled or postponed; suddenly you’re shooting again, you get the sides in the moment but you don’t feel ready; you get last-minute auditions, etc. It's much more challenging to carry out a project nowadays than it was before. And we thought we could control it, have techniques, show up and never fail. That doesn't make sense anymore


When you watch my training you'll discover that this doesn’t mean that you need to be unaffected or stronger than what’s happening. On the contrary, the opportunity here is to become the most authentic, open, present, free and alive version of yourself, so that you can be more flexible emotionally, navigate the density of challenges and the stress of last minute decisions and problems; show up for your character no matter the circumstances around you and actually let them feed your characters and stories.


However, we’ve been conditioned by schooling, parenting and culture to suppress our emotions and impulses so we can please others, do things “right” and fit. When you do that as an artist, you’re no longer in your instrument and you can’t defend your character’s needs. If you’re not there, you can’t meet the current challenges; therefore, you’re unable to impact your audience.


So the work to do is to take responsibility for your instrument to make sure that you are your full and artistic version of yourself.
