Liberation of the Actor
Temple Lodge, 1992 - 148 pages
The artist was once a messenger of the gods. Breathing in, the Greek actor was lifted into a realm of thought and inspiration. And breathing out, the will was strengthened. Can modern actors again become messengers through their own power of description and dramatization?
Anyone with an interest in the spoken word, acting, or the future of the theater in general will welcome this book. The author goes beyond simple character study and interpretation to reexamine the forgotten esoteric aspects of acting. Based on Rudolf Steiner's ideas on speech and drama, Bridgmont provides a new basis for the true liberation of actors today.

surrounds its physical manifestation , the hidden soul gesture . Much more of our
inner life ...
The voice warns me , haunts me , squeezes my soul into a knot of fear . [ Hope :
sun on the surface of sea ] And yet , something tells me that this night of my soul
is lying to me - it is not true ! There is no darkness , only that of my own fashioning
My company may have seemed to you as nothing , but for me it was in the nature
of a gift . A gift which at one time I was happy to give , but a gift ceases to be one
when the recipient takes and takes . Now , I want my own soul back , thank you .
