THR321 Advaced Acting (Fall Y2K)
With you or without you I have to have it -- the roles. The pay is written already, anybody can read it, but the show is not. Can't I have roles without actors creating them? Well, I can create them out of actors.

Time to disolve the writer within the show!
Time to show how much do you understand the lines!
How do you EXPRESS it?

"Let someone explain to me why the violinist who plays in an orchestra on the tenth violin must daily perform hour-long exercises or lose his power to play? Why does the dancer work daily over every muscle in his body? Why do the painter, the sculptor, the writer praqctice their art each day and count that day lost when they do not work? And why may dramatic artist do nothing, spend his day in coffee houses and hope for the gift (of inspiration) in the evening? Enough. Is this an art when its priests speak like amateurs? There is no art that does not demand virtuosity."
