    The main purpose of our art [is] to create the life of a human soul and render it in artistic form.

    he challenge is to try and create a sense that every day’s training or rehearsal or performance could be a ‘holiday’. Or, to pick up a term from Peter Brook – a ‘holy’ day.

    He believed that if you could free your body of every sort of tension, your inner life would respond accordingly, and then you could more readily and accurately ‘reflect the life of the play in which [you’re] appearing’

    The struggle for priority among actors, directors, jealousy of each other’s success, divisions caused by differences in salaries and types of parts – all this is strongly developed in our line of work and constitutes its greatest evil.

    Curiously, the third book in what might be called Stanislavsky’s English-language ‘trilogy’ – Creating a Role – contains some of his most revealing ideas, and yet it remains elusive. Maybe because it’s an amalgam of various writings, rather than a complete book in its own right. As a result, few readers fully fathom its practicability – which is a shame, because it’s gold-dust.

    What you’re doing is seeking physical ACTIONS and feeling their impact on your inner landscape. Which gives us another equation: Given Circumstances + Actions = Powerful Emotions. Stanislavsky himself is keen to emphasise this.
    We artists must realise the truth that even small physical movements, when injected into given circumstances, acquire great significance through their influence on emotion.62
