This Video Changed my Life as a Creative

As a creative person, I love getting new inspiration from the videos I watch. So when I came across Patsy Rodenburg’s “Why I do theatre”, I was expecting to be inspired.

Instead of just the inspiration I craved, I found myself shifting into an innovative mindset when it comes to acting.

In other words, it changed my life.

What Patsy has to share about being present as an actor informed me as an actress. The story she shares about the man who approached her after a meeting, moved me to tears. And inspired me to dig deeper for the characters I play. It gave my acting a new sense of purpose.

Dreamers, Creatives, Actors, watch this powerful video.
