My Character Wouldn't Do That: Acting, Cognitive Science, and the Optimal Performance Brain

Soto-Morettini, Donna



Based on the latest research into brain activity and human behaviour, this book puts forward a new way of thinking about the practice of acting. Specifically, My Character Wouldn't Do That considers the ways in which environment shapes us, how memory works, why actors must use distinct kinds of thinking and imagination in the different stages of preparation, rehearsal, and performance.
