Directing the Monologue

Position 1 - at the microphone - closest work

Position number one is as close to the microphone as you can get, used especially for interiorizing (the 'voice in the mind').

You face the dangers of popping and blasting.

Position 1 magnifies, and concentrates on, all the aspects of the actor's voice. This gives you greater opportunities in this type of acting.

Your concentration and imaginary focus for an actor is on:

(1) the chakra point in the forehead (mid between the eyebrows) for focus, for interiorising
(2) the imaginary object for each objective in the script
