The Art of Analysis
Three Courses for actors, directors and teachers
Analysis of the Play - Role - Text
I’ll be honest… Any analysis of a play, a role or a text, no matter how accurate and beautiful, is always limited. Very limited. Why? Because the human mind is limited. Intuition is also limited, as well as seeing, hearing and all sensory perception, in short, everything is limited in the human being. Undoubtedly, it is possible to explain everything that is and what will be, regardless of what is happening around us or what may be going on inside us. Not everything is understandable, nor is it always necessary. Let us pacify our ambition. We are as far from understanding the play and the role as we are from understanding the world around us. And yet the analysis of the play, the role or the text is a necessary matter. It is an art, but it can be quite simple. There are just a few rules you need to know.
Every play, scene, text or role analysis is based on the fact that we hear the role, see the play, feel the text. Perceiving the text with the body, mind, heart, liver, soul, intellect, with the 5th, 8th and 27th sense is the ability to respond to the smallest invisible, inaudible and sometimes not yet recognised signals of the play, role text. Mastering the art of analysis means being able to unlock the energy of the text, means being able to trace the path of the play and the role, means being able to discover its various laws and rules.
If you do theatre professionally but have not yet discovered or activated this art for yourself, you will hardly be able to read, hear, see or understand a text, let alone play or direct it either on a literary, scenic or fictional level. I will let you in on the secrets of analysis.
