Abstract

Nothing can substitute for the lived experience of Jacques Lecoq’s training. This book captures the significance of that lived experience in the working lives of graduates of his school and many of the people who have been affected by his pedagogy in different ways. It also places the training in a wider context of influences and theatrical trends. Corporeal, dynamic, detailed, evocative and both disciplined and playful, his teaching has had a profound and extensive influence on Western theatre in the second half of the twentieth century and the early part of the twenty-first century.
