The essential handbookfor anyone wanting to work with Masks,
By A Customer
This review is from: Impro: Improvisation and the Theatre (Paperback)
This book is worth buying for the chapters on Mask and trance alone. Johnstone took risks in his work at The Royal Court in the 50's andf 60's before others even thought abut it...and despite opposition from Directors used Masks in rehearsal and for development of Actors. Today it is the most widely used text in working with masks in therapy, not only forits creativity, but for its clear and structured accounts of creating safety and the potency of the mask. Buy it, use and tell others about it....its a priceless gem of a book...
