When you first read something, you might have some prejudiced image of it because that is exactly how thinking process works. It is a same way that it just comes up with an image of elephant if you first heard of a word ‘elephant’.
In today’s scene study class, I began to realised that acting (or creating) is to break the first rule that we’ve already believed. There is no ‘absolute’, if there is, then it could be ‘nothing’. When I studied my masters degree at Japan, at first time, I thought there was just only one version for ‘Waiting for Godot’ by Samuel Beckett because we already know his works very well and it’s sort of symbol of a great arts like ‘Mona Lisa’ by Leonardo da Vinci. But when I’ve got researched more and more, I found that there are a bunch of different writing of ‘Waiting for Godot’ written in French and English originally by the writer.
I believe that it is not just coincidence when we talked about ‘A Doll’s House’ by Ibsen which has 3 different types of playwright, also I was strongly believed that there is a only original script for ‘A Doll’s House’ which turned out I’m wrong. As an actor, you have seriously open mind to every single things even you have strong faith in it. Actors should be in doubt always. Keep ask yourself and find your own answers, that is a job what actors to do.
