January 5, 2007, Newsletter Issue #46: Drama and Acting

Tip of the Week

Drama entails a plot and characters that are governed by a certain overriding theme. As an actor, it is your duty to understand this theme and let it suffuse your work. Work within the drama and let it flow through you and the relationships that you build with other characters. You can begin by discussing the stage- or screenplay with your fellow actors and/or the director (or dramaturg, if one is available). Coming to a common agreement about the motivations of each character will help round out the production as a whole.
