CREATICS is a performance-oriented training drawn from my 20 year-professional practice as an actor and teacher, combined with my scholarly research. CREATICS aims to develop the full scope of the actor’s creativity. In a society where creativity is a buzzword, a ‘hot’ topic, it is vital that actors acknowledge and articulate their very own special creativity. CREATICS recognizes that the creativity of acting occurs in two related but distinct contexts: rehearsal and performance. Surprisingly, this distinction is seldom made, and yet it has enormous implications for actor training. Presently, most actor training institutions in the West focus on teaching and practising rehearsal techniques. It is assumed that rehearsal competency naturally leads to performance-proficiency. There are, however, specific skills, techniques and approaches we can be teaching to enhance the actor’s creativity in performance. These skills, techniques and approaches form the basis of CREATICS.
