Description

    • Imported from USA.

    As stage and screen artists explore new means to enhance their craft, a new wave of interest in expressive movement and
    physical improvisation has developed. And in order to bring authenticity and believability to a character, it has become
    increasingly vital for actors to be aware of movement and physical acting. Stage and screen artists must now call upon
    physical presence, movement on stage, non-verbal interactions, and gestures to fully convey themselves.

    In Bringing the Body to the Stage and Screen, Annette Lust provides stage and screen artists with a program of physical
    and related expressive exercises that can empower their art with more creativity. In this book, Lust provides a general
    introduction to movement, including definitions and differences between movement on the stage and screen, how to conduct
    a class or learn on one's own, and choosing a movement style. Throughout the book and in the appendixes, Lust
    incorporates learning programs that cover the use of basic physical and expressive exercises for the entire body. In
    addition, she provides original solo and group pantomimes; improvisational exercises; examples of plays, fiction,
    poetry, and songs that may be interpreted with movement; a list of training centers in America and Europe; and an
    extensive bibliography and videography.

    With 15 interviews and essays by prominent stage and screen actors, mimes, clowns, dancers, and puppeteers who describe
    the importance of movement in their art and illustrated with dozens of photos of renowned world companies and artists,
    Bringing the Body to the Stage and Screen will be a valuable resource for theater teachers and students, as well as
    anyone engaged in the performing arts.
