Acts: Theater, Philosophy, and the Performing SelfTzachi Zamir 2014
The book engages questions of theatrical inspiration, the actor's "energy," the difference between acting and pretending, the special role of repetition as part of live acting, the audience and its attraction to acting, and the unique significance of the actor's voice. It examines the embodied nature of the actor's animation of a fiction, the breakdown of the distinction between what one acts and who one is, and the transition from what one performs into who one is, creating an interdisciplinary meditation on the relationship between life and acting.
