1. “We’ve bought into the idea that education is about training and “success,” defined monetarily, rather than learning to think critically and challenge. We should not forget that the true purpose of education is to make minds, not careers. A culture that does not grasp the vital interplay between morality and power, which mistakes management techniques for wisdom, which fails to understand that the measure of a civilization is its compassion, not its speed or ability to consume, condemns itself to death.” – Chris Hedges (Empire of Illusion: The End of Literacy and the Triumph of Spectacle)

8. New Feedbacks:

“Matthias Schott is an outstanding acting coach and workshop leader. Through the detailed exercises in the workshops and his incredible curated eye, he provides generous individual feedback which has been pivotal on my acting journey. He is a true talent and the classes are not only a melting pot of ideas and experimentation but also fun! I can truly say that without it, my acting journey would not have grown as much. His knowledge, expertise and intuitive eye is unsurpassed.” – Alaa Taha (Playwright/Actress)
I took Matthias workshop as a beginner. It was one of my first acting experiences. Although I had a hard time openning up in the beginning, his sensitive individual care helped me overcome my fears and blockages. By the end of the week, not only did I perform like I had never imagined I could, but also learned a lot about myself and my abilities and strengths. I would recommend Matthias‘ workshops to anyone who wants to improve their acting by taking a deep look into their soul and grow out of self reflection. I will definitely continue to participate in Matthias‘ courses. He is a very inspiring and wonderful human being.” – Rebecca Veil (Susan Batson Technik & Schauspiel Intensiv)
“Schott Acting Studio is the one Acting Studio in Europe that offers workshops and masterclasses with iconic teachers from all over the world. One year ago I took my first workshop organized by Schott Acting Studio and it helped me a lot to pursue my dream to move to the states and establish contacts for working internationally as an actor. After I finished drama school in Germany I was hungry for more and I still feel lucky to have taken several workshops in Berlin organized by Matthias Schott. These workshops and the wonderful teachers, colleagues and artists I met there had a huge impact on my journey which now led me to studying at the Actors Studio in New York. I’ll forever be grateful for these immensely inspiring and nurturing workshop experiences and the doors that opened themselves because of them. Thank you Matthias! ” – Janina Picard

New York Times “Laura Dern embraces…”

“The Method is strong in Dern’s family. Bruce Dern and Ladd studied at the Actors Studio, and Laura took classes at the Lee Strasberg Theater and Film Institute as a 9-year-old. Dern’s acting teacher of 30 years, Sandra Seacat, also came out of the Method. But Seacat’s pedagogy is a little different. The process begins with the actor writing a letter to herself. According to Seacat, such a letter might read, “Dear Inner Self, if it is your will, please reveal to me in a dream tonight, the inner truth of this character that is in me, this part of me that’s the character.” Then the actor brings the dream to workshop, where she might perform rituals based on it or cast other actors to perform it. Seacat believes, and Dern strongly affirms, that the artist is a “wounded healer” and that by finding in her character her own “wound,” and expressing it, she has the power to heal herself and the audience.” – (NYT)
