What makes an artist? What makes him or her creative, going beyond technique? The answer is profoundly simple, the ability to be inspired, able to live spontaneously in the context of the character and the play(….). Real thoughts are simple, personal, profound, they come from what you sense and feel. They are more spontaneous. They are not correct, or intellectualized, and mechanical. Recognizing the difference, you think like a human being, putting yourself into the character’s shoes.

John Strasberg, Artist’s Statement


Berlin Acting Masterclass by John Strasberg:
Organic Creative Process for Actors – 2nd Edition

February 13 – 17, 2017

Introduction by John Strasberg:

“The Masterclass is based on developing each actor’s Organic Creative Process, a deeply personal creative process based on developing a consciously, intuitive process that helps the actor to become deeply involved in the character’s world, transforming him or herself.

Good actors live in another world. Great actors live in another world as somebody else.

Actors will learn Involvement, dreaming, imagining, flashes of insight, understanding, and learning how to read and understand the script, which is what is important.

Technique is not a mechanical, linear process. Class feels like a rehearsal, more than a class. The Actors’ Studio was unique in the world, and my work continues to embody that love, passion, discipline, and dedication.”
