All books in the Routledge Performance Practitioners series are carefully designed to enable the reader to understand the work of a key practitioner. They provide the first step towards critical understanding and a springboard for further study for students on twentieth century, contemporary theatre and theatre history courses. This is the first book to combine
a biographical introduction to Meyerhold's life
a clear explanation of his theoretical writings
an analysis of his masterpiece production 'Revisor, or The Government Inspector'
a comprehensive and useable description of the 'biomechanical' exercises he developed for training the actor.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
In this book, Pitches breaks down Meyerhold to his essence (and Meyerhold would appreciate it!), making a lifetime of complicated ideas about theater and a vast directing career so clear and exciting. His clarity and enthusiasm for the work is thrilling, and the exercises for the theater student learning Meyerhold are right-on. I highly recommend this book to anyone trying to learn about Meyerhold, and this series of books to all young theater directors.
