Год издания: 2010Количество страниц: 162
The living theatre is potentially the most affecting of all the arts. It not only explores who we are and where we are going, but how we are connected. As we are inundated with other versions of mass media, we have nearly forgotten how important that connection is. We cannot afford to lose the power of this art at this time in our history. John Ahart writes A Different Direction: 7 Possibilities for Saving the (Barely) Living Theatre from the refreshingly rare place of both skepticism and hope. He is, after all, suggesting major renovations to the very institution he has called home for so many years--tools to both reimagine and reinvent this amazing living human resource. This is a book for directors, actors, designers, playwrights and in fact all those for whom the idea of an art dealing in bone-deep truth and life-changing experiences might become not only a dream but a possibility.
