The Creative Explosion Workshop

cover_Kerr_principlesThe Purpose of the Workshop.

to create the energy to start what you haven’t started and blast through the block that is in the way of going where you want to go.  In this powerful, easy, and fun workshop you will learn about and apply the four principles of authentic acting to authentic living.
What Happens When You Enroll in the Workshop. The moment you register the process begins with:

1.    IMMEDIATE BREAKTHROUGH.  You start moving forward in an area in which you have been stuck.  Miracles may occur between the time you register and the time you arrive at the workshop.
2.    RESISTANCE AND/OR FEAR.  The very act of commitment may bring up all the unexperienced feelings that have been in the way of your commitment.  You may seem to feel “worse.” Negative thoughts and judgments may become more prevalent. This is fine. Bring them with you to the workshop.
3.    INTEREST/OPENNESS.  You may be ready for something new and not quite know what it is.  This is a very powerful position.  The workshop may hold many surprises for you.

What Happens During the Workshop.

The first day will be instruction, sharing, exercises, and time to record your experience.  Bring a notebook—preferably a large, three ring.  Wear comfortable, layered clothing (you will feel hot or cold depending on your own emotional temperature.)  Bring a snack or two.  If you have any medical problems that need attention please let me know what they are. On the first day you also will learn a technique that can change your life.  It’s called Getting Present.
On the second day of the workshop, using what you have learned, you will present a monologue, song, poem, short story, anecdote, or speech or a combination.  Four or five minutes is the preferred length, but it (or they) should be no shorter than one minute and no more than 10.   If at all possible, memorize or extemporize rather than read from a paper or note cards.
While the workshop is experiential, there is no pressure.  We write, share, and laugh a lot.  People leave feeling clearer, energized, and sometimes utterly transformed.  Committing to the workshop begins the process.

  1. Have wondered why I had not been getting your blogs, so resigned up
    To stay in touch with ole style wit (a complement).

  2. Hi, Katherine,
    I took the Creative Explosion workshop with you in 1993 and am interested in doing so again, but, when I tried to contact you at the phone number you show, a recording said it wasn’t a working number. I prefer phones to email, so if you could send me a current number, I would like to discuss the workshop with you. It was extremely helpful to me the first time. I hope you are having a great day.

      • Thank you, Katherine, for getting back to me. I’m sorry that you don’t have plans for the Creative Explosion anytime soon, but I hope you’ll let me know if and when you decide to resume it. The short story that resulted from my taking your workshop was excerpted in two different anthologies, for which I thank you. I
        read that you once appeared in the play “Boo Hoo,” which I saw in London in 1978 and remember as a highlight of that trip. Please let me know of any performances of anything you have coming up. I still consider your performance in “Cloud Nine” a great favorite. Be well and happy until we meet again.


  3. Hi Ms. Kerr,

    My teacher told me to read your book on Saturday, December 9th. In researching your book and subsequently yourself as an actress, writer and teacher I am curious to know if there is an upcoming workshop in or around NYC?

    Thank you,
