the action or fact of moving along in a steady, continuous stream.
In the moment definition
You are characterized as “in the moment” if wherever you are, whatever you are doing, your mind and body are right there as well. No dwelling on the past, the future, or any obligations or troubles you may be encountering in your life. If you are in the moment, you are right here, right now, nowhere else
Taking into account the above, this is our end goal as actors which will be the beginning, middle and end of the scene in question

In prep you will have decided on your strategy by using the FACTA acting formula listed below.
