Theater Games for the Lone Actor: A Handbook
Theater Games for the Lone Actor: A Handbook
by Paul Sills
Edition: Paperback
Price: 14.26

5.0 out of 5 stars Concentrate, 10 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book tells the story of how a lone actor can be in touch with their environment. It is an exercise in mindfulness for actors, public speakers, and anyone who has even a passing interest why good actors own the space.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's not nothing, it's something, it's a Universe., 10 April 2013
Prof Krauss takes us on a journey into somewhere that words are difficult. In summary nothing is unstable, because of this there is something. Telling this story is the task he took on, this task is hard enough, however he then stripped away the maths used to describe what nothing is. To deliver the story in words was some feat, something I really enjoyed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Economics from a different view, 14 Mar 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rogue Economics (Hardcover)
Telling the story of illegal business from the authors vantage point one sees a different view of why some people are unfortunate. Worth a read, the story rings true. As with all versions of events this one has a focal point, one you do not see in the press. It has a place in your library if only for you to have a broader view of what may be going on in our world.

This video tells a twisting tail of life as it might be, it does this in the context of how small the world really is.

Impro does the necessary in introducing the actor, or artist into the ways of thinking which allow for improvisation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Runyon The Big Book, 5 Jan 2010

Brilliant, I second the first review. It is a gem, if you get half a chance get a copy. Most if not all of the stories in this book would make great film noir.

4.0 out of 5 stars Runyon's Fun House, 5 Jan 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This collection of Runyon's short stories tells tales as good as any film noir. He takes you to a world of criminal exploit as a casual onlooker if not a junior participant. He has some great turns of phrase, "ever loving wife", I'll leave the rest to you to enjoy. Sit back, with some time on your hands and be entertained. They don't make them like this too often.

5.0 out of 5 stars While You Still Have Freedom To Think, 5 Jan 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is my hope that people everywhere read this book. It has within its covers a lot of material discussing the limits that our current society faces as we allow our politicians create monopolies with no plus side for any one state's national good. The basic reasoning goes like this, if you limit the ability to do things, you limit the ability to build on that. There will be no giants upon whose shoulders we may stand if the current trend continues. Think for a moment of the Mickey Mouse story, are any of the original authors making any gain from that work. I rest my case.
Enjoy this exercise, while you still can.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Mr James More, 5 Jan 2010
This was a great read, I enjoyed it from start to finish, I have enjoyed Clive James work for years, this book is just more of the same great entertainment. My hope is that he keeps writing because I'll keep buying.
