This article is a reflection on the four body energy states developed by Arthur Lessac: Buoyancy, Radiancy, Potency e Inter-Involvement and their use in the training of actors. Through a descriptive analysis of three explorations carried out according to Lessac’s approach, this article indicates ways to use these energies to animate the game of improvisation, to the characterization of characters and to the vocal action. We also establish a relation between the actor’s energy and his scenic presence.
