terminology from Darren

“invisible body”: What an actor does off-stage, which helps in his performance on-stage. Eg. Tai-chi, amateur boxing, basketball, soccer, marathon-running, stamina-training.

“theatre sports”: team-games that actors play among themselves, that help their performance, and athleticism – and, all-importantly, awareness – on-stage. Eg. “Cat and Mouse”, Tag, Zip Zap Zoom, and variations of Broken Telephone.

What is the difference between a good actor and a great actor? Kester, my classmate, said: “I think [Darren, our coach, said] it is about specificity – being specific and clear about your intentions and expressions [while acting].”

Darren said, “a good actor can act. A great actor can show specificity.”
