Abstract or description

A commitment to exploring both form and content are the jumping off points for this article which examines the howness of the improvisatory rehearsal technique known as Active Analysis alongside the howness of writing about something as highly subjective as acting and actor training. Taking the format of the novel as its driving force with particular regard to the unique ability of the novel to communicate consciousness in a way which more traditionally academic formats cannot, it follows the story of Victor and his struggle to commit to a new way of experiencing his work, a new kind of howness. Along the way he discovers a great deal about the nature of process and how the kind of attention he pays to the world and his work alters the experience of what actually happens.
