This book has been written with the aim of supporting those drama teachers who, with little experience of physical theatre themselves, have a genuine interest in the style and want to enthuse their students to use it in their work. At the same time, we hope the handbook will prove valuable to those students who are already passionate about the subject and are keen to bring the style into their own work. If you are that student who always goes beyond the call of duty, driven by a genuine interest in all kinds of theatre and a passion to contribute to the art form, this book is for you. This is a brief book, with a handful of exercises to kick-off the devising process. It consists of four parts. Part 1: DEVISING AND PHYSICAL THEATRE, an advocacy chapter, Part 2: CREATING PHYSICAL THEATRE, Part 3: WORKING WITH MASKS and Part 4: FIVE PLAYS TO PLAY WITH, a collection of five short plays which illustrate how working in a stylised way can take the audience to a different world.
