Fulfills it's Objective,
This review is from: Jacques Lecoq (Routledge Performance Practitioners) (Paperback)
In combining historical facts, key teachings and practical exercises, this book does succeed. The study of Theatre de Complicite is not by any means indepth.
This, however is also true of the rest of the book. It is an introduction and nothing more. It's practical usefulness is also questionable, where Lecoq's style was pysical, in-depth and time-consuming this does not attempt either. Any exercises discussed (the last 20 pages) are only mentioned in relation to theory. It is not representative of Lecoq's style, especially in comparison to Lecoq's "The Moving Body" which is nothing but physical exercises and theory centered around them.
May be useful for brief comparison to other practioners or when short of time.
