The Key Questions unlock the information necessary to engage the Acting Basics.
Relationship: Who am I acting with?
You are always acting with someone: who is it? You have three choices: another character or characters, a projected image of yourself, or the audience. If you are acting with “yourself”, you are pulling away from the audience. If you are acting with “the world”, you are bypassing the audience.
Clearly defined Relationships include, not just who the other Characters are, but how you feel about them, what you intend towards them, and what you will not risk in terms of your relationship with them.
Relationships do not have to remain consistent throughout the play, they can and should shift. Change the relationship and you change the acting.
The more your Relationships change, the richer your Acting is.
