The Expressive Actor : Integrated Voice, Movement and Acting Training, Paperback / softback Book

The Expressive Actor : Integrated Voice, Movement and Acting Training Paperback / softback


"The study of acting should not begin with an exploration of feeling, perception, imagination, memories, intention, personalization, self-identification... or even performance-but physical action."Michael Lugering's The Expressive Actor presents a foundational, preparatory training method, using movement to unlock the entire acting process.

Its action-based perspective integrates voice, movement and basic acting training into a unified approach.

A wealth of exercises and diagrams guide the reader through this internationally taught program, making it an ideal step-by-step course for both solo and classroom use.

Through this course, voice and body training becomes more than a simple skill-building activity - it is the central prerequisite to any actor training.

This new Routledge edition has been fully updated, to include: A revised prologue, further discussing the historical and philosophical grounding of The Lugering Method A new introduction, with particular focus on the integrative nature of the method and how the book should be used.

New developments, clarifications, and 12 new exercises. 6 new illustrative diagrams.
