In this process they come to know their limits & walls they have created or imposed with in every sphere of life.

The very purpose of one’s life is to know ‘the self’. In a border spectrum of social & professional life, there is only one breed & profession the ACTOR, who works on life.

Through the various practically designed exercises & tasks to explore the very limits of the self-i.e. Brain, Body & voice the students are transformed from a common being to a power being. And the journey of accomplishing the basic task of being an ACTOR begins. The student starts exploring the life within & out.

According the ‘ACTORS LIFE BOOK’ Doctrine it begins from the very basic yet the only source of life ‘the Breath’.  Breathe is energy. Soul of living beings. It is the only vital source to explore & channelize our inner world and further connect & transcend us to the infinite cosmic energy.

In the absence of food & water, we can survive for few days, but in the absence of breath we cannot survive after few minutes. A rightly inhaled fresh & deep breath is the major source of power energy. Body, Brain and Voice works on Breath. For an Actor’s training Breath is the 1st step to begin with.

After a well-designed physical workout to stretch & expand ones physical limits, Stretching & expanding your abdominal limit is the basic exercise in Actors Life Book course.  Through a inhale exhale warm up and then pumping Breath in & out Students are prepared to inhale maximum breathe filling their lungs [respiratory system] and hold it. A per second count is done to measure their limit of hold. In a routine exercise they are prepared to break away from their fixed system to an OPEN System.

BRAIN & INTELLECT

The physical being & living, is a Brain Game. The Brain which is yet an Unexplored Creative Underworld. So how to unlock the mystery ?..

This is the Key Concept of our practically unique Techniques. Discover, liberate and live the Self, by creating awakening moments of physical transcendence.

The training  is based on the very balancing activation of Brain & Body. thus surpassing the limits of Conditioned Mind and Revealing the Self to the Self !

Training the mind is a big challenge. Reprogramming the Brain is preparing you to accept your ‘dead ends’’. And erasing your traditionally programmed junk bias & beliefs. In Actors Life Book reprogramming of Brain is a series of practically designed exercises, rather than wordy lectures and abstract philosophy. The task is achieved within a time frame. We learn that mind is not a singular muscle but an archive of multiple intelligences, operations and awareness. Most of them remained inactive or neglected during conventional education. Even they have been suppress and abused.

Through a well synchronized & orchestrated exercises and activities the students are empowered & educated to renew their Brain faculty.  Actors Life Book Brain drain education focusses on building the Athlete of intelligent emotions. We work on the root cultivation of RASAS., so the students practically utilise it in scene development with natural ease.       

Being Indian we know our roots better. Despite of very strong cultural roots the larger India is a less educated, uninformed, politically divided  and suppressed society. Simultaneously we know that supressed emotions [energy] has an ability to be converted into a  dynamic bounce back  theory. Thus the  Actors Life Book course is designed to nurture the Indian students on a global standard.

IMAGINATION. IMPROVISATION 

As Einstein said ‘imagination is more powerful than knowledge’. Improvisation is the major tool of an Actor to think and create a flawless performance to surprise & please himself. It is an essential skill of rightly trained actor who wish to invent the hidden magical elements & spontaneity.

Improvisation is a journey which evolves from the known script to unknown performance. It is a characters inherent thirst in a deserted mirage. 

Improvisation is the art of prompt imagination into a flawless action. It can be applied in a scene development, live performance, on a one line idea, a particular character, a situation etc.

Public performances stage show, drama or shooting a scene is a real test for an actor.

Actors Life Book prepares the students to explore the multi-layer aspects and dimensions of a character in solo & group performances. The actors are trained to challenge their imagination in action, gradually it becomes a natural habit and imagination in action transforms into imagination in motion.        

In a character study a methodical and conventional history sheet of the character is developed, studied, discussed and performed.

Within the conventional method of frame work, the actors are instigated to break away from the conventional to unconventional.  And the magical mantra of improvisation becomes the prime tool of the performer.
