Mitchell Gossett's Workshop Technique

“The only thing you have that no other actor in the world has--is YOU.” - Mitchell Gossett

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.
