Toward Fantastic Realism

Nature should come to life in order to activate the superconscious … Nature can only come to life when the material aspects [of the role] become concrete. This requires the memory of some past life. Some justication is needed in order to make the nature trust [the

reality of the stage]; it will come instinctively, thus bringing with itself the superconscious. Only 1∕10 of the role can be prepared; 9∕10 of the role should remain

subconscious; it must not be touched. An actor can only approach the inner intensity by experiencing the

entire gamut of his role’s emotions. Every actor must invent something for themselves. Time is fatum.2
