Mission Statement: Drama, Actors and the Origin of Ghost Players
When you look at the world outside today, you see our convenient materialistic western culture enables us to enjoy so-called drama/entertainment so easily with the development of mass media. And today's vast amusement parks/theme parks are like the museums with millions of ''experiences.'' ---In the end, we realize that those are not with masterpieces but mostly advertisements to manipulate our mind---We find exactly same things in seven hundred channels of video in TV.

Back in the old days, when theatre originated with Noh/Kabuki players, Greek masked players, African drummers, ritual practitioners---, the actors used to move their audience organically. People used to fear those players as ghosts who shake the hearts and souls of human being in the theatre, not because they received a complimentary review or had outstanding education in prestigious acting school, but because the audience truly feared their souls and spirits on stage---.Now, there is something for us, actors to aim for.
If the actor strives to make his/her work or performance pure, gets out to the world and stand up on the stage, devoid of desire to manipulate, their drama must become pure and truly moving.
''The blandishments of fame, money, and security are great and attractive, but sometimes they have to be quieted, sometimes they have to be compromised with---just as in any other sphere of life,'' The words of David Mamet---that the job of an actor is primary a job of the philosopher. In working on stage/film, we keep asking the these questions: ''Did we think it's truly funny? Did we truly astonish them? Did they gasp? (A standing ovation can be extorted from the audience. A gasp cannot.) Actors, in the end, get to ask: ''what is true, what is false what is finally important---?'' It is not a sign of ignorance not to know the answers, but there is a great merit in facing the questions.''
