Abstract

What does it mean to be an actor? Viola Spolin’s classic textbook Improvisation for the Theater begins by connecting “stageworthy” acting not to extraordinary talent as one might perhaps expect, but to a kind of carefully developed theatrical intuition— namely, the actor’s ability to become present to her surroundings and, without hesitation, act in creative, free response to what she is experiencing.
