Abstract

The idea of a 'neutral presence' is one of the key concepts discussed in contemporary theatre, in training and performance, as a recognizable non-physical space and a psychophysical state, which exists beyond the imaginary and discursive world of theatrical presence. This essay investigates the link between breath and actor's presence.
