Description - Improv for Actors by Dan Diggles

In this step-by-step guide, an actor and improvisational teacher brings his tested methods to the page to show how actors can take risks and gain spontaneity in all genres of scripted theatre. Through 28 lessons-each of which includes warm-ups, points of concentration, and improvisation exercises-Improv for Actors provides insights into thinking and reacting with fluidity, exploring a character's social status, using the voice and body as effective tools of storytelling, and more. Actors of all levels will soon be able to give a fresh, original approach to classic characters, create funnier performances in farce and comedy, and make dramatic characters richer and more believable.
