The Actor's Memory. Studies in Theatrical Anthropology

What is an actor's memory? Are there special devices or techniques that theatre actors use to memorize texts? How accurately do actors convey the content of the author's notes? Are there many similarities between epic narrators and theatre actors?

Nikita Petrov, Head of the Theoretical Laboratory of Folklore Studies at the School of Humanitarian Research of the Russian Academy of National Economy and Public Administration, Associate Professor at Russian State Humanitarian University;
Valeria Ustinova, theatre teacher, expert at the Center for Corporate Governance at the National Research University Higher School of Economics, artistic director of the Thoughtful Readings project.
