The Empty Space: A Book About the Theatre: Deadly, Holy, Rough, Immediate

Product Description

Used Book in Good Condition

Imported from USA

First published in 1968, The Empty Space is a timeless analysis of theatre, from perhaps the most influential director
of the twentieth century. In The Empty Space, groundbreaking director Peter Brook draws on a life in love with the stage
to explore the issues facing any theatrical performance. Here he describes important developments in theatre from the
last century, as well as smaller scale events, from productions by Stanislavsky to the rise of Method Acting, from
Brecht’s revolutionary alienation technique to the free form happenings of the 1960s, and from the different styles of
such great Shakespearean actors as John Gielgud and Paul Scofield to a joyous impromptu performance in the burnt-out
shell of the Hamburg Opera just after the war. Passionate, unconventional, and fascinating, his book shows how theatre
defies rules, builds and shatters illusions, and creates lasting memories for its audiences.
