Description - Systems of Rehearsal by Shomit Mitter
Systems of Rehearsal is the first appraisal of theatre workshop techniques which successfully bridges the gap between theory and practice. A product of both academic training and practical experience, the book elucidates the three principal paradigms in which most theatre work is conducted today - those developed by Stanislavsky, Brecht and Grotowski. Mitter assesses the extent of Peter Brook's debt to these directors in terms of the different aims they have had for their theatres, the problems these have entailed for their actors and the exercises they have developed to combat these difficulties. The result is perhaps the most illuminating introduction to modern theatre practice available - essential reading for students and practitioners.
