Memory Technique for Actors, modernizes actors understanding of memorization process with the principles of current neuroscience. Basic ideas from neuroscience describing encoding (making memory) versus decoding (retrieving memory) give actors a better understanding of the relationship between their creative process and their memory process. Memory Acting explains difference types of memory actors integrate into scenes and how to use them to build performances. Some techniques include Chucking, Binding, Triggers, Spatial Substitution, Encoding and Decoding, Accumulation, Transformation, and the traditional Memory Arts Techniques. MA works with other techniques -- "Method with your Memory."
I ask my students,“Would you take one vocal lesson and then assume you can go and sing an opera?” They answer, “No.” Then don’t assume you can do it with memory. Memory skills and techniques require serious study andwork to master. They are NOT parlor tricks to “memorize your lines.”
