Abstract

In the depths of their souls, the overwhelming majority of actors, regardless of which school they belong to, are supporters of the creative process onstage, i.e. experiencing. Even if they don’t understand this themselves, even if they consider themselves to be cold and proficient “masters of form,” when they are carried away onstage, when their blood starts boiling, when their heart starts pounding, and their voice sounds with resonating strength – they hardly fault themselves for it. This is understandable: the more skilled an actor is, the more he feels his connection with the audience, and the more they affect him, as he affects them. This is one of the laws of art onstage. 1 Those who openly consider themselves to be supporters of truth employ various means in trying to evoke truthfulness, sincerity, and experiencing in themselves while onstage.
