This paper proposes a dialogue between applied theater, motor cognition and some current ideas about mental presence in the philosophy of psychology. Firstly, it is suggested that the inter- play between neuroscience and theater-making can be expanded in applied theater. Secondly, my understanding of the performer's work on physical action responds to recent research about the psychology of mental presence and the duration of nowness. Thirdly, some central ideas about action representation in the area of mo- tor cognition are transposed to performance-making to discuss a working method with participants of applied theater. Overall, this contribution presents the practice of applied theater as a locus in which participants can become aware of action as a process on the cognitive level.
