What Is One-Thought-One-Action™ (OTOA)?
One-Thought-One-Action™ is a revolutionary rehearsal and performance technique developed by New York director and coach, Gia Forakis.
One-Thought-One-Action™ is a method for identifying smaller increments of thought as smaller moments of physical action.
One-Thought-One-Action™ functions from an intuitive premise that leads the performer to liberate their motivations for a more detailed, engaged and dynamic presence; ultimately connecting with and engaging audiences in a more visceral way.
