Perceptual Acting and Directing (P.A.D.) addresses people who wish to unblock and release taught behaviors that act as an obstacle to cultivating a free, spontaneous and sincere self and artists, actors in training, amateurs and professionals, directors, dramatists etc.
Ρ.Α.D. is a useful training tool for people who manage and affect small and large social networks given that in this day and age society dictates a way of managing people that balances the left and right part of the brain i.e. logic, language, judgement, emotion, subconscious, the wider understanding of the common and personal good, your own good, your colleagues good and that of society.
The modern way of training uses theatre as a self-learning tool. Experiential knowledge is man’s most essential tool for communicating with his own truth. Once our body becomes in sync with the thought determined by our emotion only then does it receive information that arises from the subconscious depicting our truth that often clashes with reality. A trainee will learn how to develop and put into practice his/her personal maturity, personal, spiritual, physical and emotional perception, the perception of the five senses, that determine our way of communicating with the environment, in order to enter the path of consciousness. Our basic traits do not change but our behaviors do. The only obstacle to our development is not “who I am” but who I believe I am. The greatest enemy of our own “selves” is our EGO. Every time our EGO is called upon to be happy playing a “role” that society, work, family or a partner likes and wants it presents a “self” that ignores the true self. Deconstruct the EGO (EGO = EDGING GOD OUT !) and enjoy EVERYTHING by exploring “who I am” through “roles” in theatre and real life.
Perceptual Acting and Directing (P.A.D.) is a new theory and action system with exercises, a foundation for every artist interested in evolving as a human being and master his own unique identity (actors, directors, dramatists etc.).
It is the foundation for every acting method and a lifelong learning manual that relates the human/artist development and self actualization through spirituality, western and eastern philosophical placements, the value system by which humans live through the analysis of the Homer’s Odyssey, ancient Greek philosophy, meditation all the way through the theory of quantum physics and the foundation of Method Acting.
It focuses on the compositional harmonization of the triptych body spirit soul & Ego, subconscious, Higher self.
Μy passion is the study of human’s nature, his behavior and how each one of us should behave as a social being, aiming at the development of each artist personally and collectively and in need of a “better world” for everyone, I have created ΡΑD always bearing in mind the ability to positively influence the collective subconscious. PAD training creates conscious and heart oriented people that can through their art and interaction with fellow human beings act for the common, personal and general good. ΡΑD is a theory and method of connecting with your soul. PAD is a theory and method for social strengthening, positive changes for the common good as well as a tool for a collective leap of consciousness that humanity so strongly needs today.
“YOU HAVE TO BE HUMAN IN ORDER TO ACT HUMAN
YOU HAVE TO ACT HUMAN IN ORDER TO BE HUMAN”
PAD’s main tool is a manual that contains theory, new ways of thinking, emotional training and taking responsibility for our outcomes, a procedure for life decisions and action, maturity and an understanding of our existence through quantum authentication. The entire material is analyzed through a synchronicity of the trainee with the role.
No teacher can teach you “who you are” regardless of the laws of human conduct and the potential and practice put in to expanding your perception. ΡΑD helps you make a leap of perception and understand “Who Am I”. The observer’s diary becomes your everyday tool to explore your artistic identity.
