Mitchell believes the most exciting way to explore material is not through thoughts alone, but through “ACTIONS” – through what you are DOING with your body. Bring ACTions into the work creates a stronger, more visceral connection to the material. But as importantly, it also provides a means of showing the most unique feature any actor can present: THEMSELVES in the work.
“The only thing you have that no other actor in the world has – is YOU!” – Mitchell Gossett
