The open door : thoughts on acting and theatre by Peter Brook( Book )
24 editions published between 1993 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 912 libraries worldwide
From King Lear to the Tragedy of Carmen, from Marat/Sade to the epic Mahabharata, the author has reinvented modern theatre, not once but again and again. In this work the visionary director and theorist offers a lucid, comprehensive exposition of the philosophy that underlies his work. It is a philosophy of paradoxes: We come to the theatre to find life, but that life must be different from the life we find outside. Actors have to prepare painstakingly yet be willing to sacrifice the results of their preparation. The director's most reliable tool may be his capacity to be bored. The author illustrates these principles with anecdotes that span his entire career and that demonstrate his familiarity with Shakespeare, Chekhov, and the indigenous theatres of India and Iran. The result is a look at what happens both onstage and behind the scenes

15 editions published between 1974 and 2002 in English and held by 357 libraries worldwide
"Based on a talk given by Peter Brook in Berlin, Evoking Shakespeare addresses a number of essential questions about performing Shakespeare today. 'Why is Shakespeare not out of date?' 'What do we mean by Shakespeare's "genius" or "creativity" or "poetry"?' 'What, in fact, is the Shakespeare phenomenon?'" "In attempting answers to these and other questions, Brook invites us to consider the actual conditions of the Elizabethan theatre and the actual qualities of Shakespeare's language. The result is a provocative take on our greatest playwright by one of his most influential modern interpreters."--Jacket
