The Thermostatic Actor : Improvisation in Stanislavski's 'Cybernetic' System Scholte, Tom


Presentation given by Tom Scholte at ICASP 2010 Colloquium "Sound Lines: Improvisation, Text, and Media." Scholte discusses modern theories of acting, particularly the Stanislavski system, in relation to the idea of cybernetic feedback. With the help of two student actors, Scholte then illustrates how acting is, at its core, fundamentally improvisational.
