  Abstract:   Speaking in public and public speaking are the two communication instances that centre our daily activity at various levels. Both are based on our idea of being present in live communication acts. The examination of old common roots of the art of the Rhetorician, the orator and that of the Actor leads to outstanding findings about the public space and the layers of staging and theatricality the act of public communication puts forward. The purpose of this paper is to make obvious how the new technologies of the information and communication brought major changes in both public speaking and the speaking in public. The thesis is that speaking not only that it became more spectacular, but that it needs always a stage and a theatrical direction to perform at its highest even in ordinary instances of everyday life.

Keywords: actor, communication, emotions, performance, public speaking, rhetorician, staging, and theatricality
