All the world’s a stage – Shakespeare.
We are all actors in the theatre of life and we play our parts, consciously or unconsciously.
At the end of the day, each scriptwriter will have some say, about the final stage of his or her own personal play.
In the old (still present) age it has felt like the stage had been set. Most of us have simply read our lines, without questioning why we were in the theatre in the first place.
In the new age our roles will be more clear. A more fluid, creative paradigm is about to appear.
The old, decaying stage has been taken over by bad actors. It is rapidly deteriorating and ethical actors are looking for an ascending stage to board.
Standing on the edge of the old, looking out for something new, a new stage comes into view.
While the old stage required clever acting with sophisticated masks, the new one calls for simplicity, authenticity and empathy.
Old stage acting on the new platform is bound to fail, because as we shift, masks come off and stage curtains lift. Roles are changing.
Transition actors are rewriting the script and making sure that parts are flipped, from low to high-end performances.
By taking the spectator’s view, scriptwriting actors carefully observe themselves and how they interact with others on stage and in the theatre. Here they self-identify areas that need improvement.
The most challenging part is for actors to acknowledge their current low-level acting. Those who do, will understand how to reach the next stage.
A drama, once scripted to end in tragedy, is being reworked into a coming-of-age tale of transformation, rebirth and altered fate.
Should the old stage fall away (a real possibility) early-bird actors will already be in another play. This is a multi-dimensional theatre.
The transformation of surface acting to core acting is being helped along by a new element filtering into the auditorium. The atmosphere is changing.
Although the new stage promises to accommodate all willing and committed actors from the old play, many of those actors remain more comfortable with decay.
The old and new stages overlap, but will shift away from each other. Making the transition sooner will be easier than later.
The new paradigm is not for the faint-hearted. It will demand active stage maintenance and committed stage management from the outset while acting responsibly towards the entire spectrum of life within the theatre.
This project is for the Big-Hearted – the Full-of-Heart. Find your Heart and you will find your way, to the stage of this exciting new play!
