The best performers make it look so easy. Everything that happens on stage seems to come from the same place: this perfect connection between body and mind. Every movement seems to be perfectly associated with the thought within the body. Yet performing in this way does not come automatically. It demands a huge amount of patience, faith and guidance.
This book brings to bear Agnès de Brunhoff’s wealth of experience coaching actors, singers and other performers as well as her own expe-rience as a performer. She uses clear practical examples to set out the key features of her approach and how it can be applied, outlining her conception of performance as a balance between the performer and their art, and between the use of the body and the stimuli on stage. She describes in detail how she helps her students develop their talents and really come into their own as individuals as well as performers. A truly original approach to getting back to yourself both on stage and in life.
