CANCELED Transformation Station 25.3.2020

''I think there is a meaningful difference between transformative acting and watching the firework display of another individual’s personality, however exciting. In the former, the satisfaction lies in discovering the heart of the chameleon beating underneath the skin, however many colours it adopts. It consists in penetrating through to the essence of another human being, and by this means intuiting something of the meaning of a human existence. ''

- Vladimir Mirodan in “The actor and the character - explorations in the Psychology of Transformative acting”
