Book Description

30 April 2009 Performance Books
'In life I want students to be alive and on stage I want them to be artists' Jacques Lecoq.
Jacques Lecoq was one of the most inspirational theatre teachers of our age. The International Theatre School he founded in Paris remains an unrivalled centre for the art of physical theatre. In The Moving Body, Lecoq shares his unique philosophy of performance, improvisation, masks, movement and gesture which together form one of the greatest influences on contemporary theatre. Neutral mask, character mask, and counter masks, bouffons, acrobatics and commedia, clowns and complicity: all the famous Lecoq techniques are covered here - techniques that have made their way into the work of former collaborators and students inluding Dario Fo, Julie Taymor, Ariane Mnouchkine, Yasmina Reza and Theatre de Complicite. This paperback edition contains a Foreword by Simon McBurney, Artistic Director of Complicite and an Afterword by Fay Lecoq, Director of the International Theatre School in Paris.

5.0 out of 5 stars Le corp Poétique 26 Sep 2011
Format:Paperback
A classic. A must read. Still, who's in search of detailed exercises will be disappointed. This is not a training hand book, but much more a physical theatre's Manifesto.

By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book is fascinating and magical. It is an autobiography of his work. Lots of practical stuff to draw from, and a guide to the roots of physical theatre.
