While studying acting, Nolan Grigsby found that traditional techniques weren’t working for him. He decided to create his own method and has recently been praised and acknowledged by the Colorado Theater Guild.
While touring the country and trying to make Stanislavski’s Method work for him, he made an important discovery that changed his life forever. When he was playing places in the Northeast, he noticed that his energy was very different from when he played houses in the Southwest. In fact, he was able to understand that his energy would change based on the navigational direction he faced at any given moment.
And thus, Compass-ition was born. The ability to feel different energies, based on the directions of the compass, and channel those energies into performance.
