The Director & The Stage by Edward Braun
From Naturalism to Grotowski (Performance Books)

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Beginning with the triple impulses of Naturalism, symbolism and the grotesque, the bulk of the book concentrates on the most famous directors of this 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.
