“It’s very difficult to improvise when you put all your weight on your words. Your words would have to be brilliant to get an audience response. None of us is that smart. TJ advocates moving the weight from the words to the emotions. Doing so makes your words less important. And if the words are less important, it frees up an enormous part of your brain – the part that helps you do a good scene.”
Christina Gausas and Rebecca Sohn talked about weight and heat in the workshops I’ve taken with them.
