No Fronts
Actors' Workshop

"Necessity is the mother of innovation. Although we are not reinventing the wheel with these workshops that have occurred for two quarters, we are constantly reinventing ourselves. We are doing this by examining our pasts, grounding ourselves in the present, and working towards prosperous growth for our futures. None of this is possible without the support and encouragement of our friends, family and community. , As we continue to grow as artists and human beings, it is important to not forget the lessons that have brought us to this moment. The authenticity of our indivisual experiences are what makes us unique and translating that into our craft as actors is what we are striving for. As we continue our journey from the streets to the set we bring with us the richness of our cultures, perspectives, and love for storytelling."
