What if all the theatre books in the world taught people how to rehearse but not how to perform? Nothing on presentation.

This book gives all the tools that a reasonably competent adult would need to understand improv theatre, train others, form a performing group, and keep it together as long as possible. The unique element of this book is it’s focus not only on improv concepts and games but on practical guidelines for creating a viable performing group and staging improv games for live audiences.

«El libro de Clive Barker es más que una simple guía de juegos de improvisación para actores: es, más bien, una exploración integral de las técnicas de actuación» The New York Theatre Review «Theatre Games es una contribución masiva al arte del teatro … Una cartera abultada de credo, manualidades, consejos e instrucciones … Es deslumbrantemente astuto y una lectura emocionante, bastante diferente a un libro de texto, más bien una larga y fascinante charla en las horas pequeñas». Los juegos del Stage Theatre son un método para entrenar actores que fue desarrollado en el siglo XX por profesionales destacados, incluido Clive Barker, que entrenó a actores en el Taller de Teatro de Joan Littlewood en su apogeo.

Los juegos están organizados en orden de complejidad e ilustrados con fotografías y diagramas. Esta reedición de este texto clásico y atemporal ahora incluye un DVD con material de video que muestra…
