The theatre-acting, creating, interpreting - means total involvement, the totality of heart, mind and spirit.More Stella Adler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When an acting teacher tells a student 'that wasn't honest work' or 'that didn't seem real,' what does this mean? In life, we are rarely 'truthful' or 'honest' or 'real'. And characters in plays are almost never 'truthful' or 'honest' or 'real'. What exactly do teachers even mean by these words? A more useful question is: What is the story the actor was telling in their work? An actor is always telling a story. We all are telling stories, all the time. Story: that is what it is all about.More Stella Adler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
