Communication with Emotion: What Actors Do?


Communication with Emotion: What Actors Do?

Presentation Group:Yurui Communication Laboratory

Faculty of Environment and Information StudiesKato Fumitoshi

Our project has uncovered that the actors' process of acting and preparing for their roles is communication with emotion. We could say that acting is a tool to remind us that our communication is with our emotions. In the session, with the front-line actors, we will discuss the potential of communication with emotions hidden in acting and explore clues for reflecting on our daily actions.
