Inhaltsangabe: Most theatre practitioners think of physical theatre as one thing and text as another. In this book, Dymphna Callery, author of Through the Body a practical guide to physical theatre, shows how exercises and rehearsal techniques normally associated with physical and devised theatre can be fruitfully applied to the exploration of scripted plays. Working through the body enables players to gain a fuller realization of the text.
Full of theatre games, improvisation exercises and rehearsal techniques, The Active Text is an inspirational handbook for performers, directors and teachers working in a variety of situations, primarily in the drama studio or rehearsal room but also in community and youth theatres, as well as in the classroom where the study of a dramatic text can be invigorated by physical exploration.
Basing her work on a dozen or so well-known texts, from the Greeks to Sarah Kane, via Shakespeare, Miller and Beckett, and self-confessedly raiding well-established practitioners from Brecht to Simon McBurney via Lecoq, Brook and Mamet, Dymphna Callery takes us on a process of physical exploration and experimentation which includes such techniques as Mapping the Play - how the narrative unfolds, how relationships develop, etc - and Charting the Journeys - how characters progress and change through significant keypoints.
The same seriously playful process which is customarily applied to devising work is applied in this book to exploring a text: with the result that The Active Text is an invaluable guide to bringing plays alive through the body .
