Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 1994, the world's most innovative and reputable theater directors came to Manchester and mesmerized audiences with their entertaining talks on stage about the intricacies of their profession. With Shakespeare as a recurring theme the directors candidly discussed their changing role and the skills needed to accommodate such diverse issues as multiculturalism, design, aesthetics, and audience expectation. These interviews and talks are collected together in this outstanding book. The list of contributors is a roll-call of the directors who have helped shape the development of theater in the last twenty years: Peter Brook, Robert Wilson, Peter Sellars, and many more. An extraordinary epilogue by Peter Brook, Jonathan Miller, and Oliver Sacks is a fitting finale.

Synopsis:

In 1994 the Arts Council of Great Britain brought together a number of theatre directors as part of the City of Drama celebrations. This is a collection of their interviews and discussions, which involved directors such as Peter Brook, Peter Stein, Augusto Boal, Jorge Lavelli and Jonathan Miller.

Synopsis:

Rarely has the private world of the director in the rehearsal room been so frankly and entertainingly opened. In addition to the art and craft of directing, they discuss: multiculturalism; the 'classical' repertoire; theatre companies and institutions; working in a foreign language; opera; Shakespeare; new technologies; the art of acting; design; international festivals; politics and aesthetics; the audience; theatre and society.

Synopsis:

In their own words, the world's greatest theatre directors--Peter Brook, Augusto Boal, Robert Wilson, Peter Sellars, plus many more--discuss their private world and the art of directing. Fully illustrated, each interviewed is accompanied by a brief outline of the career and significance of the director being interviewed, including key productions and bibliographical data.
