Nourishment for the actor

Written by

I’ve had an interesting summer. A month ago I got a call from a director colleague on a Sunday morning who had to replace an actor in a play that would be opening the following Friday night. That would be in 5 days.

The Power of Letting Go……of Stuff!

Written by

Recently I was invited to a woman’s group initiated by a couple of producers I’ve worked with who I adore and admire. I was really touched to be asked to join this group of successful, intelligent, growth oriented woman so I ignored my initial resistance and fear of being the oldest, least attractive person with the least amount of credibility and I showed up for the gathering with an open mind and curiosity about what would unfold.

So let me set this up a little…

Somos Mexicanos Americanos

Written by

“The Mexican Youth in the U.S. is, indeed, a very fortunate person. Why? Where else in one country do you have two cultures and civilizations of the highest type that have been developed come together to form into one?”
-Manuel Ceja, a student at Compton Junior College writing in the Mexican Voice 1938.

Tammie Noelle Merheb’s designs cross from stage to screen, from marley floor to red carpet.

Take a stroll down “Village Walk” in Tarzana (the shopping center at Ventura Blvd. and Yolanda St) and spend some time with the public art project, two Byzantine mosaic fountains and a mural, by Jose Antonio Aguirre. The fountain on the east corner of Yolanda is titled "Our Vanishing World" and was produced in 2007. The other fountain, "Living Legends," and the mural "El Camino Real," were created in 2010.

Last month's blog was about living truthfully in your characters’ every moment. I gave an example of an experience in one of my classes. Here's a continuation of that conversation.

L’Imagerie Gallery

Written by

You’d think the NoHo Arts District would have a hell of a lot more visual art galleries than it does.

I learn a thing or two from each and every gig I do. Sometimes I learn the hard way through mistakes I make and being publicly humbled, but often times now its from what has been done right and the delightful feeling I get when the choreography of what ‘s been created is a magical dance number with a standing ovation at the end.

New Mexico is very popular place to shoot right now.

Your Dancing Brain

Written by

 

When exploring new subjects to write about, I became very curious about the human capacity for movement. 

PART I

In a recent class I had two actors on stage doing the Meisner Repetition Exercise. If you’re not familiar with “Repetitions,” it’s an exercise in listening, reacting, and working off the other actor, as you repeat your partner’s behavior and they repeat it back to you again. (That’s a quick and simple description of repetitions. I assume most of you reading this are already familiar with the exercise. If not, don’t worry, as I’ll be addressing this in a later blog.) These two actors were on stage for about three minutes, and they shared great chemistry. When they finished I asked them this:
