What if I connect so fully to my character and the world of the play or film that I lose myself almost totally; and every muscle and nerve, every action, every reaction I have comes purely on real impulse, moment to moment, with imagination and creativity coloring everything in a constant river of inspiration?
Our intense discipline uses sense memory training in developing the actor’s ability to produce specific emotional, physical, mental and spiritual conditions. We then apply exciting new discoveries in character development that take the actor far beyond the traditional ‘Method' technique. The actor develops and then inhabits the character fully!
We are an international company of actors, writers, directors, and designers who share an exciting and penetrating artistic approach. As theatre and film become more internationally focused, IT New York anticipates accelerated cultural collaboration in the theatrical arts. Through intensive training, theatre and film production, special workshops, seminars and festival participation, IT New York facilitates and promotes the exchange of artistic, literary and cultural aspects of the performing arts around the world.
“When we have trained to the point where the character's behavior becomes spontaneous and unconscious, we can be more creative than we ever thought possible, because the imaginative impulse will be unconscious and experiential rather than merely mental. At this point the actor's performance can take flight." - Robert Castle

What’s the nutshell? For an artist, the limitations of their art form. For a ballet dancer, or a Kabuki actor, or a writer of Haiku, the limitations are very strict. For an actor, a writer of novels, or a be-bop saxophonist, the nutshell can be much larger. But it’s still a nutshell…
