Beyond Self – Expression:
INTENSIVE ACTING SEMINAR
DOMINIQUE DE FAZIO
19-21 October 2018
"Beyond the tears of the actor, beyond ‘Method Acting’, there is a Way of Acting that can change the lives of human beings."
"A great actor can express "relationship". For example, in a scene about a person leaving another, both ‘the leaving’ and ‘the being left behind’ are united in the single act. Or when the rain falls onto the earth, the actor can be both the heavy clouds and the thirsty earth at once."
"To suggest such a possibility of acting we need actors who desire to be so open and moveable and intimate with life that their souls and the world around them can both breathe out through the actors' gestures."
"Actors serve as ‘Witnesses to the Wonders’ to open the eyes and the ears and hearts of those in the public to the amazing beauty of even ordinary life."
- Dominique De Fazio
THE DE FAZIO SYSTEM
of CREATIVE STUDY and RESEARCH
Toward a Poetic Theatre.
The De Fazio System of Creative Study and Research was first dubbed "The Poetic Theatre" by the Spanish playwright and journalist J. L. Alonso de Santos to distinguish it from what is he had previously encountered in “The Method”.
De Fazio’s teaching comes from two main roots:
- The Tradition of Stanislavski
Dominique De Fazio was a long-time student of Lee Strasberg, is a Lifetime Member and teacher of The Actors Studio inNew York, and for years was a world -renown teacher of "The Method".
- De Fazio’s ownexploration of eastern studies and practices
As a Zen practitioner for many years, a Kempo expert, Tai Chi and Qigong practioner, a certifi ed sumi-e paint e r (Prof. Kwai, Ja pa n), and as a Shifu of the Daoist American Dragon Gate Lineage.
"To reveal the Life of a human soul
and render it in artistic form"
“De Fazio - sul Set a Hollywood”
Dicono di lui:
"LO STUDIO ‘DE FAZIO’ PER ME È UN LUOGO PER DISCUTERE APERTAMENTE DEI PROBLEMI CREATIVI CHE AFFRONTIAMO COME ARTISTI. - IL LAVORO SULLA VOCE IN PARTICOLARE È MOLTO IMPORTANTE PER ME E LO CONSIGLIO VIVAMENTE A QUALSIASI CANTANTE / ATTORE CHE VUOLE ESSERE AFFASCINATO DALLE INFINITE POSSIBILITÀ CHE LA VOCE UMANA POSSIEDE PER COMUNICARE.”
– T. GURA, CANTANTE LIRICA
“DOMINIQUE DE FAZIO NON HA MAI RISPOSTO A UNA DELLE MIE DOMANDE SULLA CREATIVITÀ. MI GUIDA IN MONDI NEI QUALI PROVO RIVELAZIONI, IN PRIMA PERSONA, SU DOMANDE CREATIVE, CHE NON SAPEVO NEANCHE DI AVERE. HO IMPARATO COME IL MODO DI DOMANDARE POSSA ESSERE LA RISPOSTA IN SÉ. IO DIVIDO LA MIA CARRIERA COME ARTISTA E IL MIO MODO DI VEDERE LA RELAZIONE TRA ARTE E VITA IN 'PRIMA DE FAZIO' E 'DOPO DE FAZIO'.”
– E. HESSE, ATTORE
