Twentieth Century Actor Training

Twentieth Century Actor Training $39.99

Alison Hodge - ed

Published by Routledge

Actor training is arguably the most unique phenomenon of twentieth century theatre making. Here, for the first time, the theories, training exercises, and productions of fourteen directors are analyzed in one single volume. Twentieth Century Actor Training provides a unique account of specific training exercises and an analysis of their relationship to the practitioners' theoretical and esthetic concerns

Looking at many of the landmark productions of the past 100 years, Alison Hodge also examines the relationship between actor training and production and considers how directly the actor training relates to performance

The practitioners included are: Stella Adler, Bertolt Brecht, Joseph Chaikin, Jacques Copeau, Joan Littlewood, Vsevelod Meyerhold, Konstantin Stanislavsky, Eugenio Barba, Peter Brook, Michael Chekhov, Jerzy Grotowski, Sanford Meisner, Wlodimierz Staniewski and Lee Strasberg
