Philosophy

“I love the beautiful honestly that comes from working with people who have been able to drop their mask. In my training as coach of the Chubbuck Technique I have seen actors drop into an inner truth where they discover themselves in the characters they are playing. This technique is a desire to find the deepest truth possible and for an artist to discover more about themselves to serve the character on his or her journey. In a process of self discovery, the great joy is for an actor to share with the audience these discoveries.  It’s both enlightening and heartbreaking for the actor and the audience. In the words of Polonius ‘To thine own self be true’ – from Shakespeare’s Hamlet” – Lyndelle
