Abstract:

In this edition, as in the first one, the relationship between the inner motivation of movement and the outer functioning of the body is explored. Acting and dancing are shown as activities deeply concerned with man's urge to establish values and meanings. The student is introduced to basic principles underlying movement expression and experience and the numerous exercises are intended to challenge his intellectual, emotional and physical responses. The many descriptions of movement scenes and mime-dances are designed to stimulate penetration into man's inner life whence movement and action originate. -from dust jacket
