Description

"The purpose of this book is to chart the rise of the theatre director in the late 19th century and follow his emergence as one of the most important figures behind the staging any play today."

Beginning with the triple impulses of Naturalism, symbolism and the grotesque, the bulk of the book concentrates on the most famous directors of the 20th century - Stanislavski, Reinhardt, Graig, Meyerhold, Piscator, Brecht, Artuaud and Grotowski. Braun's guide is more practical than theoretical, delineating how each director changed the tradition that came before him.
