Lecoq's influence on the theatre of the latter half of the twentieth century cannot be overestimated. This is the first book to combine * an historical introduction to his life and the context in which he worked * an analysis of his teaching methods and principles of body work, movement * creativity, and contemporary theatre * detailed studies of the work of Theatre de Complicite and Mummenschanz * practical exercises demonstrating Lecoq's distinctive approach to actor training.
