As You Crave the Soul

​I was fortunate enough to have Olympia Dukakis as my final acting teacher at NYU. This picture was taken from our last class when she brought in her amazing friend Lynn Cohen to speak to us about acting. It was the first time I've had a female acting teacher at NYU and I'm leaving school so inspired to claim my work on stage. As a parting gift Olympia gave us copies of a poem that inspired her as an actress that I will copy here :)

As You Crave The Soul

What you dream is that, by eating

the flesh of words, what you make

makes mind and body

one. When after a reading, you

are asked

to describe your aestheics,

you reply, An aesthetics of embodiment.

-Frank Bidart
