Summary Acting, Imaging, and the Unconscious is the fifth in a series of books written by Eric Morris on his unique system of acting. In this book the emphasis is on imaging as an acting tool to fulfill dramatic material. The work begins with an exploration of the various uses of imaging and goes on to delineate very specific techniques and approaches on how to image, when to image and why. Involved in this process are dreams and dreaming, as well as subpersonalities, which all serve to access and communicate with the unconscious, where ninety-five per cent of an actor's talent lives. Also explored is a process of programming the unconscious to liberate the images that lie at the core of an actor's experience and talent, thus releasing the exciting wellsprings of creativity in the roles an actor plays. With complete examples taken from classical and contemporary plays and films, this book enters territories that had never before been tread upon, thus taking the art of acting into a totally new dimension.
