Actor Movement: Expression of the Physical Being.pdf
Written by specialist movement teachers, Actor Movement offers analysed practice and the precise detailing of the movement experience: questions; examples and a breakdown of exercises, all supported by video content and by a glossary of terms, further reading and an appendix of source material. It provides actors' and practitioners' quotations, shares images and diagrams and provides examples of practice. Actor Movement will inspire confidence in the actor to make fully owned physical choices and develop a love of movement. It provides the tools and the craft for the reader to interrogate these techniques and practices, and offers the actor and movement practitioner ways of using their past practice fruitfully. It is also an essential new reference work to help establish articulation of movement as a subject, translating the languages of other movement and dance practices to an actor's language, and offering new vocabulary for movement and the actor.
