The actor on stage and on screen

Bilyana Dilkova

Abstract. The article formulates the specifics of acting. It describes the different forms of connection between the stage and the auditorium and singles out the actor as the one who gives a theatrical expression to everything that is on the stage. There are some examples of “demolition” and “removal” of the ramp, as well as the stability of its boundaries given.

The main point of the paper is about the television conditions which destroy the familiar forms of acting and the distinction between two different styles of acting - theatrical and cinematic.

Cinema changes the typical for the theatre relationship between conditionality and authenticity, but their mutual influence and enrichment - between the stage and the screen (big and small) - are tangible.
