Sample Pages from the TEAM for Actors Book

TEAM for Actors synthesizes three elements in human behavior: thought, emotion, and action. This holistic technique  helps actors see how these three inter-related parts are present in the actor’s life, in the character’s life, and in basic human behavior. This union of the first three parts combined  with the actor’s Personal Connection  to these elements  manifests a fully realized, passionate, embodied performance.

TEAM is an acronym: Thought + Emotion + Action = Manifestation

The book provides a chapter  for each aspect of the approach,  presenting theories and  tangible methods  for exploring  the  areas of Thought,  Emotion, and Action. The Manifestation  chapter  guides the actor  through  the process of unifying with the character’s experience and moving from theory into embodiment.
