Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"A Director Prepares" aims to offer a thought-provoking examination of the challenges of making theatre. In it, Anne Bogart speaks candidly of the courage required to create "art with great presence". Each chapter tackles one of the seven major areas Bogart has identified as both potential partner and potential obstacle to art-making: violence; memory; terror; eroticism; stereotype; embarrassment; and resistance. Each one can be used to generate extraordinary creative energy, if we know how to use it. "A Director Prepares" offers every practitioner an insight into the creative process.

Synopsis:

A Director Prepares is a thought-provoking examination of the challenges of making theatre. In it, Anne Bogart speaks candidly and with wisdom of the courage required to create 'art with great presence'.

Each chapter tackles one of the seven major areas Bogart has identified as both potential partner and potential obstacle to art-making.

A Director Prepares offers every practitioner an extraordinary insight into the creative process. It is a handbook, Bible and manifesto, all in one. No other book on the art of theatre comes even close to offering this much understanding, experience and inspiration.
