The Actor at Work
Focusing on the underlying principles of the acting process, this volume continues to present an experiential sequence of exercises designed to help students develop a thorough understanding of the physical, vocal, analytical and ethical aspects of the actor's art. This accessible revision begins by concentrating on the preparation of body and voice in Part I. Part II then examines the concept of action, and Part III concludes by focusing on development of character in the rehearsal process.
