The secret art of the performer : a dictionary of theatre anthropology by Eugenio Barba( Book )
66 editions published between 1991 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,142 libraries worldwide
"A Dictionary of Theatre Anthropology juxtaposes visual demonstrations of the performer's craft, from a wealth of Eastern and Western sources. More than just a dictionary, this is a handbook for theatre practitioners and a guide for students and scholars of transcultural performance. It is the result of many years of research conducted by Eugenio Barba and the International School of Theatre Anthropology (ISTA) based in Denmark, and is now a classic foundational text. Whereas most Western research is concerned with naturalism and psychological realism in acting, the Dictionary focuses on the actor's arduous and eclectic craft. The Dictionary aims to expand our knowledge of the possibilities of the scenic body, and of the spectator's response to the dynamics of performance." "Containing over 650 photographs and diagrams, this illustrated and entirely original sourcebook on Western and non-Western theatre is a tribute to the secret art of the performer."--Jacket
Towards a poor theatre by Jerzy Grotowski( Book )
44 editions published between 1968 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 757 libraries worldwide
"In 1968, Jerzy Grotowski published his groundbreaking Towards a Poor Theatre, a record of the theatrical investigations conducted at his experimental theater in Poland. This classic work on acting and performance is now available once again. In his preface to the original edition, Peter Brook wrote: "Grotowski is unique. Why? Because no one else in the world, to my knowledge no one since Stanislavski, has investigated the nature of acting, its phenomenon, its meaning, the nature and science of its mental-physical-emotional processes as deeply as Grotowski." More recently, Richard Schechner has called Grotowski "one of the four great directors of Western theater." Jerzy Grotowski was born in Poland in 1933. In 1982 he moved to the United States and worked at the University of California. He later moved to Italy, where he continued his unique and intense theatrical investigation. He died in 1999"--Publisher description
The paper canoe : a guide to theatre anthropology by Eugenio Barba( Book )
22 editions published between 1993 and 2005 in English and held by 555 libraries worldwide
"Eugenio Barba, director, theorist and founder of Odin Teatret, is today one of the major points of reference for contemporary theatre. The Paper Canoe is the first major study of theatre anthropology; it distils all the research of ISTA, the International School of Theatre Anthropology, and focuses upon the pre-expressive level of the performer's art. Barba defines this as the basic technique which creates 'presence' on stage; a dilated and effective body which can hold and guide a spectator's attention." "The Paper Canoe alternates between detached analysis and the observations of an ardent traveller who reveals the value of theatre as a discipline and a revolt. It comprises a fascinating dialogue with the masters of Asian performance and the makers of twentieth-century theatre, such as Stanislavski, Meyerhold, Craig, Copeau, Brecht, Artaud and Decroux, making their thoughts and techniques accessible and relevant to contemporary practice." "The Paper Canoe establishes beyond doubt the importance of Barba's practical and theoretical work for today's students and practitioners of performance."--Jacket
