First of all, I don’t just train actors. I help individuals step into their power so that they can experience the wonder of their artistry. That may sound extreme, but really, everyone who feels guided, curious or compelled to join one of my Acting or Creativity courses is hearing their soul request to experience something special.
If you decide to train with me, you will experience a different kind of actor training. I believe if a participant does not receive support, nourishment and the feeling of safety then they will not be able to experience the highest form of their creativity. In order to experience creative joy that is unbounded pure energy, a student needs to be uplifted and empowerment. My work is all about empowering artists as they step into their birthright of self expression and heightened creativity.
During my own actor training, there was very little emotional support from my teachers- not always, but generally- given the depth of the emotional well you were expected to dive into and the great extent of the vulnerability you were required to participate in performance training. Students need a safety net. Artists need to know that they are safe and protected when they step into the space.
In my classes and coaching the safety net is ALWAYS there. There are now rules of respect, guidelines and boundaries to firmly have in place a code of conduct and ethics:
a) If you ever feel overwhelmed or uncomfortable by an exercise or sections of a workshop you are welcome to observe or step out of the room
b) We treat each other with respect and honour peoples words and perspectives by fully listening to them and not interrupting them when they’re speaking
c) If you are ever given material (a scene or scenario) that you don’t feel comfortable with tell me and we’ll find you something else
In my Acting and Creativity Courses you will feel supported, safe, guided, inspired and fully engaged. If the choice feels right for you- enrolments are being taken for the 7 Week Courses in Term 4. For details see the website (clairepasvolsky.com or email me firstname.lastname@example.org)- early bird specials end this week. Alternatively if you are not in Newcastle but require coaching and support I run sessions over Skype for my national and international students)
