Revised and updated with fifty new photographs of the performers’ craft, bibliography and index, and three new chapters on:
The Dictionary focuses on the craft of an actor and aims to expand our knowledge of the possibilities of the scenic body, and of the spectator's response to the dynamics of performance.

The visual essay of photographs, drawings and diagrams which runs parallel to the text is skilfully constructed to complement the textual argument and the whole Dictionary is vital reading for students of contemporary theatre theory.
