ON ACTING: Craft and Art
But to relay on craft alone in a performance is to be "crafty"--with all the hints of dishonesty implied in that term.
Exciting acting is an art as well as a craft. Craft emphasises the practical efforts involved in a task; art involves the end result of such craft.
The art of acting is the intensity, variety and complexity of feeling that an actor's performance exhibits. The craft of acting is simply (and nobly) the means used to achieve and package such a performance
Craft without art is shallow and incomplete. Art without craft, however, is impossible. They are twin efforts, symbiotically entwined in any great performance.
