I love my acting class family. I'm so grateful to be in a community of open, free, exploratory, creative people. We challenge each other and support each other. We share the deepest of emotions.
It's not all sunshine and rainbows. There's a lot of muck and discomfort. There's hurt and confusion, resistance and fear. I guess that's life. This community gives us a forum to explore life in all its rawness and beauty. It's a place for us to examine human behaviour, simultaneously in character and in ourselves. One week I'm a CIA agent telling someone off, the next I'm a basketball coach falling in love.
Its the roles that we play in our real lives that are the most powerful. Our beautiful coach has brought us all together into one cohesive group, a group of people that spark dynamic connections with each other. Even when we've come from such different backgrounds, we're able to relate to each other in this basic human way. It gives me faith in humanity, to be honest. If our group of actors can create such profound growth and connection, what else are we capable of with each and every connection in the world?
