Your Handy Companion To Devising and Physical Theatre - Pilar Orti
Our imagination is boundless. When creating a piece of theatre, we don't need to limit ourselves to those situations we encounter in real life. Our characters can exist in dreams and other surreal places; we can even travel through time. As humans we crave stories that will take us away from our ordinary world and physical theatre is the perfect form to meet this need. Â The book includes: An advocacy chapter on the joys of physical theatre and ensemble work. A simple outline on structuring the devising process. Exercises for building the ensemble, creating characters, developing the story and using theatrical devices.
