The Technique of Inner Action: The Soul of a Performer's Work
This book focuses on the inner work of a performer. It takes up where Stanislavski's study of inner work left off and then expands inner action into a comprehensive discipline for developing an inner technique as precise and concrete as those use to develop external skills like voice and movement. Bill Bruehl argues that authentic emotions are expressed when performers focus on the internal aspirations of their character and on the flow of actions in the play. Mastery of inner action allows a performer to interpret a character with clarity, maximize creative potential, and insure authentic expression of emotion and spontaneity in performance.
