Re-Envisioning The Creative Process

One Thought & One Action at a Time

GF&CO (Gia Forakis & Company) is a not-for-profit studio-lab dedicated to creating theatrical events and projects for the stage through the experimentation and application of One-Thought-One-Action (OTOA)™.

GF&CO’s MISSION is built upon the premise that the arts are where we encounter our humanity, nurture our civility, and fortify our connection to one another. We aim to do this through our commitment to putting One-Thought-One-Action into action by developing performance projects and creating art events with like-minded artists and producing partners that remind us to foster something larger than our quotidian sense of self.

OTOA is the study and practice of identifying smaller increments of thought as smaller moments of physical action, and was founded by Master Teacher, Gia Forakis. OTOA is taught in two applications: first as a practical performance and directing technique we refer to as Performance Technique & Training (PTT)™, designed for performers, directors, collaborators, theater makers, public speakers, et.al., and second, as a practical tool for personal and professional growth that we refer to as OTOA Creative Life Practice (CLP)™, which is open to "creative thinkers" in any discipline and every field.

OTOA is the sister enterprise to GF&CO offering classes, workshops, seminars, private coaching, and studio labs that are open to the public, as well as GF&CO-member OTOA training sessions, residencies, project development, and devised collective collaborations.
