BASIC PRINCIPLE OF CREATIVITY
1) There is always a different way of doing something.
2) You have never looked at any (2)thing until you have turned it around and around.
The human capacity to judge without justification should always be uppermost in the actor’s critical consciousness. When portraying a character one should always ask: in what way does my character mislead him or herself?
Self-deception is the most human of qualities and the most ubiquitous.
ALIENATION TECHNIQUE AND ANTI-CINEMA
Alienation techniques are more appropriate for the anti-cinema actor. Contradiction is our most potent tool but the ultimate aim is for lucidness. The best that I am showing you is filtered through my own soul, but only so that you can perceive it more clearly because more objectively. The actor shold never forget that theirs is an objectifying role designed to create clarity in the transmission of the original idea.
VOICE AND GESTURE
Voice and gesture should not just demonstrate text but also desire or will. A smile rising out of a depression is not the same as the smile of happiness.
The soul of all art lies with its musicality. The writer must hear the music in his phrase and feel the sound of each word, the painter and sculptor, or designer, must hear the music in the forms, the director must understand the symphonic nature of what is being created, the dancer must feel the music in his or her body, the actor must live in the symphony.
