Using Emotional Preparation

Adding Emotional Preparation and Emotional Activation to an Acting activity an Actor can achieve a deep emotional experience as they complete a task.

The Task maybe building an assembly model or making a match sticks house, or re-varnishing furniture.

By adding activated emotion to this independent activity an actor practices their skills at concentration, with emotion.

Doing something with an emotional weight vs doing something without an emotional weight have two very different training outcomes.

Training with Deep emotion is different than training with no emotion at all.

The Task of the acting activity is to work with different levels of emotion to achieve putting emotional undercurrents into their acting work.

Thoughts
Great Ideas
Instincts
Feelings
Deep Feelings
Emotions.

Emotions are at the bottom and the deepest layer of the Actors Emotion Triangle.

Actors can work with Feelings, Instincts and even thoughts and ideas, but emotions are the deepest thing in acting to work with.
