All the world’s a stage

By Sahadev Poudel
“All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players:
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts,”
This above line is taken from the Shakespeare’s play “All the
world’s is a stage”.We all are real life actor. But when we go to the
stage life will be change. Being on stage as an actor gives you lots
of responsibility and teach you to be a real human being. If you are
a good human being you could be a Actor. Hats the basic requirement
and realities of today’s actor.

Acting is a work of actor and actor is a human being and playing a
character onstage or film. Actors are generally expected to possess a
number of skills, including good vocal projection, clarity of
speech, physical expressiveness, a good sense of perspective,
emotional availability, a well developed imagination, the ability to
analyze and understand dramatic text, and the ability to emulate or
generate emotional and physical conditions. Well-rounded actors are
often also skilled in singing, dancing, imitating dialects and
accents, improvisation, observation and emulation, mime, stage
combat, and performing classical texts such as Shakespeare.

Theatre is about 2000 years old profession but we always have new
life in theatre we create hope, we create future, we create life, we
create Dream. Theatre is all about of life. Theatre roots that go
back to ancient Greece. With the beginning of the civilization
theatre became a part of civil society. From West End theatre to
Broadway theatre actors are proud of being a part of theatre and the
audience are more excited and respectful for theatre. Theatre is
modern culture to West End to Broadway and will be forever. Every
theatre has a language of expression from Nepal’s production to
New York’s Broadway production there is a language of creation. We
all create something new all time but only the way of creation is
difference.

In the ancient Greek theater, acting was stylized; indeed, the large
outdoor theaters made subtlety of speech and gesture impossible. The
actors, all men, wore comic and tragic masks and were costumed
grotesquely, wearing padded clothes and, often, artificial
phalluses. Nevertheless, there were advocates of naturalistic acting
even at that time, and actors were held in high esteem. Actors were
like a puppet Director direct every movement, action and feeling. What
to do and how to do. Actors did not need to research about the
character they playing. They did not even understand the
character. If director found you like a character he is looking for
his play you could be on stage.

During the Christian period in Rome, acting almost disappeared, the
tradition being upheld by traveling mimes, jugglers, and acrobats
who entertained at fairs. Modern professional acting began in the
16th century. Acting in the 20th century has been greatly influenced
by the theories of the Russian director Constantine Stanislavsky. An
advocate of ensemble playing, he believed that an actor must strive
for absolute psychological identification with the character being
portrayed and that this identification is at least as important as
mastery of voice projection or body movement. Stanislavsky’s
theories were popularize after 1931in the United States.
In Today’s world of theatre actors are practicing their
skills. There is no limit of acting. No actor is success unless he
feels inside as long as he lives that he is good himself in Acting.
