Respect for Acting.
Hagen, Uta
This book, based on the author's experience as a professional actress, is divided into three sections. The first part, "The Actor," deals with techniques the actor uses to function physically, verbally, and emotionally and discusses the actor's concept of himself and the art of acting. The second part, "The Object Exercises," consists of a series of assignments for the actor to make him aware of his problems in developing his craft. The final section, "The Play and the Role," discusses the actor's definition and understanding of the play itself and his identification with the character he portrays. This final section also touches upon such concerns as "style," rehearsal situations, and audience communication. (RN)
