The intensity and actor brings to a performance. At different times in a performance an actor might use different levels of this to create different dynamics.
The way an actor deliberately manipulates emotions, moods and responses to the action by those watching. This can be done through the placement of the performer, the way the actor addresses them, and the emotional response they have to the character's situation. This can only exist when someone is watching the performance.
