As an A Level Drama Teacher, there is loads of great stuff in here for actually exploring in your lessons. Clear, easy to follow and they give some great music ideas too which I'm now getting from Itunes. It's worth getting. There are some bit early on in the book that went on a bit and were skipped, but towards the end all the devising chapters are excellent.
I can't recommend this book highly enough. Whether its how to start a piece of movement or how to fix a small section, this book is amazing to work with. I'm currently about to perform my final theatre piece at university, and I owe a lot to this book, some truly beautiful work has come out of it. This book has somehow made us look good!
Loved the first edition and love this. Like the added photos too. Great value for money and a useful tool for teaching . Everything is in this book you need to deliver processes and devices for students . And a great book for a frantic fan
I bought this book for use with my youth theatre and it has been fantastic. My group have a good bit of experience, but I think it would suit anyone looking to incorporate physical theatre into thier performances. What I found most useful was the breakdown of how Frantics movement sequences are created. Exploring their devising processes really helps us form are own. The only thing I would have liked would be a more technical breakdown of lifts. But over all sensational. Does not disappoint!!!
An account of this fantastic company's evolution with plenty of practise shared for professionals to adapt and work with. Inspirational for theatre practitioners and a must have for anyone serious about performing and teaching professionally.
