A vital companion for actors in rehearsal - a thesaurus of action-words to revitalise performance, with a foreword by Terry Johnson. Finding the right action is an essential part of the process of preparation for the actor. Using this thesaurus of active verbs, the actor can refine the action-word until s/he hits exactly the right one to help make the action come alive. The method of 'actioning' is widely used in rehearsal rooms, but has never before been set down in a systematic and comprehensive way. 'If you want to act, or act better, Actions will take you a long way on the journey to excellence' Terry Johnson

This simple and essential book about the craft of acting describes a technique developed and refined by the authors, all of them young actors, in their work with Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Mamet, actor W. H. Macy, and director Gregory Mosher. A Practical Handbook for the Actor is written for any actor who has ever experienced the frustrations of acting classes that lacked clarity and objectivity, and that failed to provide a dependable set of tools. An actor's job, the authors state, is to "find a way to live truthfully under the imaginary circumstances of the play." The ways in which an actor can attain that truth form the substance of this eloquent book. From the Trade Paperback edition.

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.
