The most difficult performance in the world is acting naturally isn’t it? Everything else is artful.’ Angela Carter, Burning You Boats……If life is a cabaret old chum then surely our invitation to join in comes with some obligation of performative invention…..Costuming our personas we engage in the existent psychodramas of our day-to-day existence, dipping into our own private dressing up box of pretending and deciding which face we’ll show to the world. Even though the theory of personality is still widely debated within psychological circles, we are surely far from being purely ruled by instinctual urges or Freudian Ids. Rather we are able to make a conscious choice and enact adramatis personae of our own becoming, a fictionalmaking up and putting onof self-ness that finds its metaphorical mirror image in acting.
