Action

"All action on the stage must have an inner justification, be logical, coherent, and real.  ... When an actor is completely absorbed by some profoundly moving objective so that he throws his whole being passionately into its execution, he reaches a state we call inspiration."

Constantin Stanislavski

Introduction to the Stanislavski System:  'Action' is the key element to all of the work.  Here the actor explores the 'event' that brings forth action.

Strong emphasis on script analysis, idea and event, Stanislavski's 'magic if', 'reporters questions', merging the inner and outer self into the action of the play.

Continued sensory exploration.
