Overview

Routledge Performance Practitioners is a series of introductory guides to the key theatre-makers of the last century. Each volume explains the background to and the work of one of the major influences on twentieth- and twenty-first-century performance.

These compact, well-illustrated and clearly written books will unravel the contribution of modern theatre's most charismatic innovators. Etienne Decroux is the first book to combine:

  • an overview of Decroux's life and work
  • an analysis of Decroux's "Words on Mime", the first book to be written about this art
  • a series of practical exercises offering an introduction to corporeal mime technique.

As a first step towards critical understanding, and as an initial exploration before going on to further, primary research, Routledge Performance Practitioners are unbeatable value for today's student.
