Toward a Humanistic Theatre.
Frisch, Jack E.
The nineteenth-century scientism of Stanislavsky has produced actors who are mechanical and unspontaneous. An alternative to this traditional approach is based on the application of new psychological insights to the production of drama. This approach not only allows the actors to explore their "being," but also allows the audience to feel a communicative contact with the actor as a real person. To illustrate the new production techniques, a theatre event, called "Mandala," is described. "Mandala," was created by a university class which prepared the script, directed, and performed employing the premise that "each person was himself an actuality" rather than an actor preparing for a role.
