Meet The Ensemble! (April 2021)


Meet The Ensemble (March 2021)


In Case You Missed It!

Dear Theatre Lovers!

On behalf of all of us at MC² Actors Studio, we would like to thank everyone that joined us for the ‘MC² Actors Studio Industry Showcase Online’ which was performed Live on Zoom Virtual Theatre on February 23rd 2021.

Our audience was in the hundreds with theatre goers from around the globe wanting to support and enjoy the magic of Live Theatre

This Showcase marked two very important dates for our studio. 

First, on Feb 14th, it was the Studio’s anniversary. 

It also marked the 1 year anniversary, March 13th 2020, when our studio had to make the difficult yet inevitable decision to close our physical studio theatre doors due to the Covid 19 pandemic and open our virtual studio theatre doors

However, we didn’t give up!

We persevered!

And though we struggled with the unknown, something incredible happened. 

As is so often the case in the life of the artist, we adjusted, adapted and made the creative conscious decision to do all we can to continue our work in this foreign land of Zoom while still upholding all of our professional standards of truth, authenticity, exploration, sophistication and artistic integrity.

All of which we are excited to share again with this exclusive VIPindustry professional viewing in case you were unable to attend the live performance!

Viewing of the Showcase is 100% Free but if moved to do so, a minimum donation of £5 / $5 is kindly recommended and appreciated. 

We at MC² Actors Studio believe that artists are essential. 

We are so proud to have dedicated our showcase to help raise donations for two very important funds. 

The first is The Actors Benevolent Fund, which is an organization helping actors greatly affected and in need because of the Covid pandemic. 

We are also raising funds to create our first ever MC² Actors Studio Scholarship Fund to offer financial assistance to applying actors from our talented ensembles experiencing financial hardship but want to continue with the cultivation of their craft at our studio. 

All donations will be split 50/50 and go directly between the 2 funds.

If you would kindly like to make a Donation please click HERE.

Meet The  MC² Actors Studio International Ensemble! (February 2021) #ActorTribe

From The MC² Actors Studio 
Masterclass:

“Dear Actor…

Dear Artist…

You will ‘know’ your creative tribe…

When you can live your most authentic genuine Self in each other’s presence…

You will never feel ‘alone’ in the work…

And you will never walk away feeling lonely…

There will always be a willing generosity of Spirit…

There will always be an undeniable human to human energetic sharing…

There will always be a connection…

There will always be a wanting to give…

And as we have seen with what is going on in our world today…

Sometimes it is through the darkest of moments…

And sometimes it is through the most inexplicable of circumstances…

That guide us…

That lead us…

Or that detour us…

To that tribe…

Those same circumstances…

That we may think are causing us to crumble…

Or break our hearts…

And our Spirit…

Are the same circumstances…

That actually break our hearts open…

And allow our Spirit…

To be IN-Spirited (inspired)…

Opening our mind, body and soul…

And awakening us to something greater than we could have ever imagined…

Those same circumstances that begin to help lead the path to our greatest purpose…

Our greatest potential…

And so we find our tribe…

Or our tribe finds us…

A tribe that meets through the most unlikely…

And yet, likely, of circumstances…

A tribe that is generous in knowledge, skill, creativity, heart, compassion, passion, love, support, kinship, responsibility, accountability, creativity, talent and Spirit…

As we continue to walk our path as artists together…

We must remember to remain students of life…

We have to be mindful to never allow the ego to rob us of the growth our work and life itself has to offer us… 

There is an inexplicable creative currency in growth.. 

Get ‘paid’ in growth…

Keep learning…

We must continue to hold ourselves to the same demands that our art form demands…

Understand that that demand is what keeps us all striving to be and do our absolute very best…

As artists…

As actors…

We must continue to strive, discover and walk toward our very own excellence…

And run like hell from mediocrity…

We must continue to work hard on the path toward all of our artistic dreams…

And know in our heart of hearts…

That all the sweat equity we put into our work and dreams…

Will indeed pay off…

And so we do so together…

We do the work…

As our very own actor tribe…

As an ensemble…

And we continue to get ‘paid’ by all of our growth…

Because we love the work…

And because we simply want to!”

Much Love,

Fueling Artistic Perseverance…  

As actors…

We have to be OK…

With allowing our instrument to experience discomfort…

We cannot shy away from it…

For it is that very discomfort…

That is the exact ingredient…

To fulfilling the most complex realities…

Of the most complicated of life’s circumstances…

Our discomfort is pregnant with the substance…

Needed to be utilized in our work…

It is through our instrument…

That we become the vessel…

To living the most complex…

The most complicated…

And even the most inexplicable…

Private essence of the human condition…

In a very public way…

And in order to do that…

We have to strive to make our history…

And our inner life/world…

Within those circumstances…

So vast…

So full…

So specific…

And so delicious…

That it/they stimulate…

And maintain…

All of our attention…

To take the risk…

To uninhibitedly go after our needs…

Moment to unknown moment…

With the true nature of action

That exists…

And necessary…

Within the world of the text…

And to help us along that journey…

We may need to utilize specific tools…

That allow that inner world to fill…

And experience those circumstances…

So we can actively live those circumstances…

With a truthful raw…

Authentic…

Unpredictably moment to unknown moment…

Honest life force…

It is through specific tools…

Using our own personal experiential vocabulary + imagination…

And the marriage of the two…

And our willingness and courage…

That we stimulate our inner world…

To actually experience…

And believe/have faith in

The most complex circumstances…

So we can then actively live those circumstances…

In service of, to and for our work…

But we must continue to exercise our work!…

Even during these unprecedented time…

We must not get discouraged…

And we must not give up…

The obstacles we face…

And the stakes that they heighten…

Must fuel the energy…

And the intention…

We put forth…

When it comes to our active pursuit…

In achieving our Life’s objectives…

If we spend all of our energy…

Allowing our obstacles…

To be the excuses of why ‘we can’t’

We simply do not give the energy…

To our Life’s objectives…

That they need and deserve…

Let not fear…

Doubt…

Or uncertainty…

Rob you of the very thing you love…

Let it fuel the flames of your passion…

To adapt…

Adjust…

Find a way…

And overcome!…

Allow the passion in your heart…

And the fire in your belly…

To be the fuel…

That keeps you persevering forward…

Despite everything ‘out there’…

That may attempt to keep you from persevering forward…

You are more powerful than you have been led to believe, dear Artists….

You are essential…

The only way to lose sight of the dream…

Is by giving up on it….

So don’t give up!

Continue to invest the necessary sweat equity…

Into what you want to make happen for yourself…

We must remember…

We get what we put into the dream…

And the Universe…

Undeniably meets us where we are…

And responds accordingly….

So persevere, dear Artists…

Stay safe…

Stay mindful…

Stay creative…

Stay on purpose…

Stay on the path of the dream!

Much Love,

Mario Campanaro
