Recherche sur les modalités psychiques à l’oeuvre dans le métier d’acteur et l’art de l’interprétation

Abstract : To play to be other than oneself, such is the work of the comedian. The complexity of the practice of drama lies in one of the paradoxes that constitutes it. The revelation of a great actor is made by his disappearance behind the character. It is thus about venturing into the exploration of the theatrical game, to try to approach the psychic modalities that allow the exploit to be another than oneself without losing oneself altogether. To open avenues for reflection on how a subject grasps the actor’s profession for its inherent creative power, as for the modalities of expression that it allows, it will be necessary to consider the whole practice. From the desire of a subject to become an actor, to the pleasure of going on stage, through drama training and the creation of a character, a journey begins to the heart of the theatrical universe begins, close to the word of the actor. Far from trying to explain an artistic practice by psychology, it is a question of considering what dramatic art would have yet to bring to the understanding of human nature. What is the specific nature of the process of symbolization at work in the art of theatrical interpretation?
