Internal and External Communication

Internal and External Communication, Acting, Voice And Speech, Voice Quality,Internal and External Communication[/caption]In communication, there is external communication and internal communication. In external communication, it is the thoughts that are conveyed, whereas internal communication is about transmitting feelings rather than thoughts.

Stanislavski called this type of internal communication “emitting and receiving rays.” In internal communication, there cannot be any suggestion of muscular tension like there is in external communication. Muscular tension in external communication refers to the physical body that lends support to the voice. That is why internal communication is not easy to achieve. Here the actor will be required to relax completely and look deeply into another’s mind to see their soul, just like two lovers would look into each other’s eyes. Only then does the stream of intense thought begin to flow from one set of eyes to the other. Stanislavski was very careful to say this type of communication was accomplished with no tension. When Stanislavski was teaching, the concepts of body language and nonverbal communication did not have a name, so he gave them his own names.
