Book Description

25 April 2002 Performance Books
Until his death in 1999, Jacques Lecoq taught indefatigably at the International Mime and Theatre school he founded in 1956. Here, for the first time in English, and in Lecoq's own words, are his philosophy and his teaching methods - probably the greatest influence on world theatre over the last thirty years. In chapters entitled Personal Journey, The World and its Movements, The Road to Creativity, & New Perspectives, Lecoq sets out his unique architecture of the body in space and explains his most famous techniques such as neutral mask, acrobatics, bouffons and the grotesque and play, and discusses the actor's approach to situation, character, environment, emotion, physical and vocal preparation and of course movement."In life I want students to be alive, and on the stage I want them to be artists." Jacques Lecoq

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.

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.
