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.  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.
