TDGE MIDTERM REVIEW In the theatre, there is a heightened acting style No two performances are ever the same Lots of use of imagination by audience Catharsis : the release or purging of unwanted emotion (fear & pity) by exposure to art Suspension of Disbelief : theory that our response to drama, though aware we are watching an act on stage, we empathize with the character portrayed. Internal v. External: where character physically leads from and what the movement subtly means Moment v. Verb: using verbs, not descriptions The Method: Stanislavsky; “realistic” approach to acting, emphasizes actor’s inner identification with the character and actor’s natural use of body and voice. Viewpoints: Unlike method approach, focuses on physical staging, tempo, gesture etc. to provoke a physical response by the actor to develop complex and original theatrical staging ideas, relationships, and actions Characteristics of Exemplary Acting: o Risk: actor following through with actions that normally are very uncomfortable done in public, or embarrassing etc. o In the moment: responding to what they’re getting o High stakes: give performance importance/danger to what character is playing o Listening: REACTING accordingly to fellow actors, audience o Subtext: audience figures out what you’re doing o Language: makes all come to life
