Theatrical Emotion: a Less Noble Approach
2009 (English)In: 2009 IFTR Conference:"Silent Voices Forbidden Lives: Censorship and Performance" : Lisboa, Portugal, July 12-18th / [ed] Maria Helena Serodio, Guitherme, Filipe, Centro de Estudos de Teatro: Impresso em Julho pela Multi Artes Grafias , 2009, 1-5 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Imagine that you have two options of comparing THE MODERN actor, either to an airplane, or to a perfume-bottle.1Where the airplane is a symbol of rationality, enlightenment, science, efficiency and reason. And where the perfume-bottle is a symbol of desire, longing, craving, affect, dreams, appearance and surface. The modern actor as either a fast and fierce airplane, or, a nice smelling, nice looking perfume bottle!
1Not to make things unnecessary complicated, having in mind the debate of the origins of modernism, I date the breakthrough of modern acting to the first half of the 1900, to first and foremost Stanislavski, but also to some of his contemporaries.
