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.
