The Actor’s Joy and Delight

“Everything we experience in our lives comes from our precise relationship to the incoming stimulus itself: we hate it, we love it, we want more of it, we want less of it, we want this person in our lives or we want this person the hell out of our lives, this is a drain or this is a gain, this is exactly what I want or this is exactly what I’m trying to avoid.

In acting, once we form a clear, immediate and specific relationship to our surroundings and all those within it, everything else begins to fall into place and flow. Acting then becomes, what we all know it to actually be: reacting.”
