Some words and thoughts of wisdom from Tommy:
*We are giving gifts to the audience. When we reach one person in the audience, you have given the gift to everyone.
* Our blows are softened and joys magnified by a strong ensemble.
* The importance of moving past our successes and failures in a scene; to live in the moment.
* To be ok with failing, but hold ourselves to perfection.
*Stay in the game.
Just when I was getting homesick for Dell'Arte, the Universe put Tommy back in my life. The language, attitude and view on theatre and art he uses is similar to the pedagogy of DAI. I have a coffee date planned with him for when he comes back! I cannot wait to pick his brain. MORE SOON!
