Broad and pleasing., 21 Feb. 2013
Whilst this does not go into any great depth on the course offered by L'école internationale de théâtre Jacques Lecoq (and this should not be the motivation for buying the book), Murray's study effects a broad and penetrating insight into the man that was Jacques Lecoq and the theatrical and historical structures that influenced the creation of his Parisian school.
Murray critically engages with the development of Lecoq's school and the theories of acting (and actor training) devised, making for an insightful academic read that problematises and theorises in its own right, rather than feebly accepting and reproducing Lecoq's own, previously published works.
