Publisher's Synopsis

This work brings together a collection of essays in English to focus on Lecoq's school of mime and physical theatre. For four decades, at his school in Paris, Lecoq trained performers from all over the world and effected a quiet revolution in the theatre.;The work of Lecoq graduates as Theatre de Complicite ("The Winter's Tale" with the Royal Shakespeare Company and "The Visit", "The Street of Crocodiles" and "The Caucasian Chalk Circle" with the Royal National Theatre) has brought Lecoq's work work to the attention of mainstream critics and audiences in Britain. Yet Complicite is just the tip of the iceberg. The contributors to this volume, most of them engaged in applying Lecoq's work, chart some of the diverse ways in which it has had an impact on out conceptions of mime, physical theatre, actor training, devising, street theatre and interculturalism. The collection of essays focus academic debate and raises awareness of the impact of Lecoq's work in Britain today.
