The Aesthetics of Theatre and Performance
A Virtual Workshop by Jack Truman
There is a philosophy to theatre. Most actors are focused on performance and less focused on what art is really about. How can we apply philosophy to our theatrical shows and performances? By reviewing acting techniques of Stanislavski, Spolin, Meisner, Hagan Hagen and Boal, combined with theatre theory of Nietzsche, Schopenhauer and Camus, along with implementing philosophical ancient Indian values from the Upanishads, Truman introduces a new style of acting that focuses on the aesthetics and philosophy of performance. Included are theatre games from the world's most renowned acting teachers.
