Abstract:

No entertainment fad or technology has changed the fundamental tool of the actor's craft: the body. The profusion of performance traditions in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries has led many actors to seek the one "right" approach, excluding all others. Consequently, fewer and fewer performers are being exposed to a wide range of disciplines. Movement for actors offers a diverse collection of essays from renowned movement teachers and directors on the physical skills needed for the stage and screen. The book traces how particular disciplines came into being, explains why skills involved are valuable to performers, and offers ready-to-use exercises. This volume includes interviews with Anne Bogart and the SITI Company and Annie-B Parson of Big Dance Theater, and essays from contributors such as director of movement training for Shakespeare & Co. Susan Dibble, Artistic Director of Dell'Arte International Joan Schirle, and many more.
