Summary "Actor training is arguably the most unique phenomenon of twentieth-century theatre making. Here, for the first time, the theories, training exercises, and productions of fourteen of the century's key theatre practitioners are analysed in a single volume." "Each chapter provides a unique account of specific training exercises and an analysis of their relationship to the practitioners' theoretical and aesthetic concerns. The collection examines the relationship between actor training and production and considers how directly the actor training relates to performance." "With detailed accounts of the principles, exercises and their application to many of the landmark productions of the past hundred years, this book will be invaluable to students, teachers, practitioners and academics alike."--Jacket
