    Superb text Worked out of this book, page by page with 10 college theatre students Highly recommend it for academic use and for personal reading Very solid text helpful in gaining a strong foundation in movement theatre that is rapidly overtaking the mainstream Many of LeCoq s ideas are visible everywhere in the NY theatre Pig Iron Theatre Company is a great example of a group of LeCoq trained performers, and is also a resource for learning , if you are in the Philly New York area.

    I have to agree with the other reviews so far This is a great book on the theatre There are so many out there that just spew out the same tired stuff in a slightly new package Lecoq is the real deal It has a place on my favorites bookshelf, where I go when I need inspiration Lots of great exercises Lots of great ideas.

    This is the last account by Jacques Lecoq of a pedagogy he developed using theatre but taking in creative experience generally inspired by nature This is his story a wise way to approach drama.
