TRAINING the EGG

“TRAINING the EGG”

 
Wobbling & Wandering…

 
…happens when “Acting” comes from the “Head,” not from the “Center” of the “Body & Mind.” Most Actors today have a “Body & Mind” that “Wobbles & Wanders,” because they do not know how to “Sit, Stand or Walk,” they do not know how to use their “Arms and Hands.”

 
If you can “Step on an Egg” without breaking it, if you can “Sit on an Egg” without breaking it, if you can “Pick up and Put down an Egg” without breaking it, then you have “Grasps” complete control of your “Body & Mind,” then, “Wobbling & Wandering” will no longer exist.

 
If you can “Hit your Mark” with an Egg on your head without breaking it, then you have “Mastered the Essence” of “Film Acting,” you have mastered “Stillness.” In short, you have mastered, “Training the Egg,” not the “Body & Mind,” you have mastered “Physical & Mental Concentration.”

 
“Teaching and Learning” is not “The Way,” it is “Reminding & Remembering” the “Eggs Purpose, ” to “Break Itself.” To be “Fragile and Controlled” without Breaking is the “Essence of being an Actor.” When the “Egg breaks Itself,” you have “Truth,” you have “Life,” you will then have the “Heart and Soul” of being an ACTOR.”

 
Like “Life,” an “Egg” is very “Fragile and Vulnerable,” it has within it “Nature’s Masterpiece,” and like “Acting,” it is our responsibility to allow it to “Emerge” when IT’S ready, not when WE’RE ready. All “Life” begins with an “Egg,” so it is with “Acting.”
