Stanislavski’s 9 Questions

If you have learned or are learning acting or theatre, you may have heard about Stanislavski.

When I learned about it at RADA (Royal Academy of Dramatic Art), it really opened my eyes to seize the characters and the structure of the play.

I will write them down in this blog just in case someone sees this and uses it for his daily communication and on stage.

Before going forward, please allow me to use only “he, him, his” for the third nouns. I personally believe it must includes “she, her, her” and that will make the world much easier and simpler.

Question 1 : Place?

Question 2: Time?

Question 3: Character?

Question 4: Action?

Question 5: Reason?

Question 6: Activities?

Question 7: Pressure?

Question 8: Obstacles?

Question 9: Stakes?

When you apply those questions to your own life, you may find your own goal in your life.

Bless Yourself

7th of February. It’s my birthday.

I had my hair cut yesterday, and woke up before sunrise this morning, feeling really fresh and kicking.Before getting out of the bed, I was pondering of my childhood, my school days, and my London days. And all of a sudden I realized how much love and help I received from may parents and friends everytime I faced bad things.

I loved my parents as a child. As I grew up to be independent, I forgot their love and I became arrogant, and things went odd.

How can it be balanced and proper in good ways if you forget your very very basic fundamental magic of your existence? It’s the gratitude of your birth. It’s miracle! How can you be successful and lovable when you don’t appreciate your birth itself?

If you want a miracle, how can it happen if you don’t believe and bless the miracle that you were born?

Bless yourself. You are the miracle. Leave darkness and approach the light.

That’s the message I’ve got from the sunrise this morning. And I am happy!

Koto YoKa

Kasuga Shrine is famous for its thousands of brass lanterns.

Traditional Japanese Important Months

8th of December is traditionally, paired up with 8th of February, an important festival in Japan.

It is called Koto YoKa.

Koto means “thing” and YoKa means “the 8th day” or “8 days”.

Gods’ Working Days

On 8th of December, Japanese Gods start preparing for the new year, and on 8th February, they finish the work.If you think of the Old Testament, God starts creating things on the day 1, and finishing off on day 6, our Koto YoKa may be understood similarly, just not in 6 days, but in 60 days, and it is repeated every year.

What we do in modern times on 8th December

We start clearing up things on 8th December; cleaning, washing, gardening, accounting, and all things you want to finish up by the 31st of December.

Then we welcome the new year for the whole month of January, that can be compared to Christian Twelfth Night, just not for 12, but for 48 days.

And traditionally we would start usual daily humdrum life on 9th of February. But of course, these days, we start working on the 4th of January.

Clean Up!

Maybe you could start finishing what you aim at the beginning of this year?
