Someone here said that during work there was no time for discussion. Oh, yes! That I understand: To get all the pleasure out of appearances, you still need to be granted the honor of participating in an intellectual exchange of opinions, concepts, and so on. Stanislavsky analyzed this kind of need in the actor. During the rehearsals of Tartuffe, his last performance, he said: “Notice during the second or third rehearsal that the actor who had expressed the most brilliant concept will be then the most paralyzed, most barren, and laziest in the work.” Why? Because he verbalized this whole concept just in order to avoid work.
