Abstract: In a climate where actor training is progressively explored, it is perhaps unsettling that there is limited scholarship on the actor’s processes in Singapore theatre. Understandably, this journey is intimate to the actor, and hidden within the confines of rehearsals. However, lapses in practical knowledge with regard to the practice of embodiment for the performer, remains. Using close observation and first-person participation as a mode of embodied ethnography, this study discusses the rehearsal approaches adopted in The Silly Little Girl and The Funny Old Tree as directed by Ang Gey Pin in 2019. The research will reveal how the know-how of embodiment transmits in rehearsals, and then how it is received and implemented by the ensemble. By analysing some essential creative circumstances required for embodiment to take place, the thesis argues for the primacy of the bodymind in creative work.
