how to Create”
©Dominique De Fazio
Schedule for 3-Day Seminar
Friday 4 October from 7pm to 10pm
Saturday 5 Ottobre from 4pm to 8pm
Domenica 6 Ottobre from 4pm to 8pm
What You Will Do in the 3 Days of Seminar:
You will be guided by Dominique De Fazio in the exploration of 8 Basic Creative Principles through practical training exercises, guided improvisations, and selective scene work suggested by the teacher.
1st Creative Principle: Sense-Become-Follow
To listen to, and to correspond with the nature of things – not to try to overcome the nature of other people or things in order to achieve some purpose or objective – this is a secret of finding the continuity of one’s soul with one’s actions with the world around one.
2nd Creative Principle: To create something to be exactly as it is.
To reveal, not to invent.
3rd Creative Principle: How one approaches a creative problem IS what one communicates MOST, on stage, in a film, and in life.
4th Creative Principle: Trust that you are being yourself when you are being other people and other things outside of yourself.
5th Creative Principle: Every creative act, whether one intends it consciously or not, carries within it a proposal of how life is, what it means. An artist is one who accepts that responsibility for his creative acts, know that each creative act is a proposal of how life is, or could be.
6th Creative Principle: GESTURES are not done; rather, they are permitted to come forth as the dynamic expression of one’s nature.
7th Creative Principle: Being able “TO RECEIVE” is the key. The prerequisite for receiving is not desire, but some degree of emptiness.
8th Creative Principle: A movement of the actor’s body, the sound of the actor’s voice, will always reveal from where it came. It’s ORIGIN. This is its “expressive logic.”
For the entire duration of the workshop all participants will have the chance to try this work and explore it practically.

PROFESSIONAL TRAINING PROGRAM (PTP),
Dominique De Fazio
to study directly with Dominique De Fazio
in a personalized Training Program
7-13 October 2019
For actors, and NOT ONLY for Actors.
Persons from twenty-two different countries have studied with Dominique in the De Fazio System of Training and Research in CREATIVITY that he invented and formulated.
Many non-actors have benefitted from this training and have found it to be creative, pragmatic, and relevant to their activities in other arts or disciplines, as well as a path to becoming conscious of oneself and the world of which we make part.
Those who have participated in this program include film and theatre directors, photographers, dancers, singers, teachers and educators, psychologists, writers, business owners, musicians, composers, and restaurant owners.
WHAT ONE STUDIES
All students in the PTP, regardless of one’s professional experience or age, study the equivalent of Level I of the professional 4-Level Training offer in the Program for Professional Artists (PPA).
Level I: How to Create
In the 1st Level, all students are guided to explore ways of perceiving the world, ways of noticing one’s relationships to all things in life, and different ways of knowing life. All of this is put into focus in terms of what one communicates to others.
In the 1st Level, one explores the secrets of “How to Create.”
It is the foundation for entire De Fazio Level Training Program. In this first level, Dominique De Fazio guides each participant to explore basic principles of creativity in a way that can be used practically and immediately in one’s life and in one’s art.
The following thematic principles will be explored in the Level I Training that will be offered through the series of PTP sessions during the 2019-2020 season:
• The essence of “naturalness”
• The nature of “experience”
• The unity of “experience and its true expression”
• The connection of VOICE AND BODY
• The practice of permitting the sensations of life
to take one into action
• The distinction between “to react” and “to reveal”
• The fundamentals of HOW TO CREATE, make real,
and make present
