"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.
A leading figure in the development of twentieth century theatre practice, Jacques Copeau pioneered work on actor-training, physical theatre and ensemble acting, and was a key innovator in the movement to de-centralize theatre and culture to the regions. This is the first book to combine:
- an overview of Copeau's life and work
- an analysis of his key ideas
- a detailed commentary of his 1917 production of Moliere's late farce Les Fourberies de Scapin - the opening performance of his influential New York season
- a series of practical exercises offering an introduction to Copeau's working methods.
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.
