A vital companion for actors in rehearsal - a thesaurus of action-words to revitalise performance, with a foreword by Terry Johnson. Finding the right action is an essential part of the process of preparation for the actor. Using this thesaurus of active verbs, the actor can refine the action-word until s/he hits exactly the right one to help make the action come alive. The method of 'actioning' is widely used in rehearsal rooms, but has never before been set down in a systematic and comprehensive way. 'If you want to act, or act better, Actions will take you a long way on the journey to excellence' Terry Johnson

To Act Is To Do by Richard Alan Nichols, who studied as a scholarship student for five years with Uta Hagen at the HB Studio in New York, is the ultimate guide for both actors and teachers. In six informative and interactive class sessions, Nichols details twenty exercises designed to solve most acting problems that arise while working on plays. Also included are eighteen evaluations of work (scenes, monologues, and Hagen exercises) presented by Nichols' students, with each evaluation serving as a model for teachers to follow in order to assist actors in learning how to assess their own work in an honest way. This unique exploration—the personal journey of one actor’s lifelong quest to perfect his craft while in pursuit of becoming a player—will help all actors develop the discipline necessary to fine-tune their acting instruments and discover new behaviors in themselves.

The theatre director is one of the most critical roles in a successful drama company, yet there are no formal qualifications required for entry into this profession. This practical guide for emerging theatre directors answers all the key questions from the very beginning of your career to key stages as you establish your credentials and get professionally recognized. It analyzes the director's role through relationships with the actors, author, designer, production manager and creative teams and provides vital advice for "on-the-job" situations where professional experience is invaluable. The book also provides an overview of the many approaches to acting methodology without focusing on any in particular to allow the director to develop their own unique methods of working with any actor's style. Each chapter includes these key features: * Introduces important theories, identifies practitioners and provides key reading to provide an overview of historic and current practice. * Interviews with leading practitioners and emerging directors. * Suggested exercises to develop the director's own approach and practical skills.

It helps bring clarity to every moment or thought in the text, energising rehearsals and bringing performances to life. Actioning will enable you to discover and unlock newfound energy, range, variety and clarity of body and voice, by: Interrogating the text and making initial action verb choices Playing your chosen actions, both verbally and physically Maintaining an imaginative and emotional connection with each moment Signposting each thought to your scene partner From the publishers of the internationally successful Actions: The Actors' Thesaurus, this is the first in-depth exploration of Actioning for student actors, those who train them, and professionals working in the industry, whether they're brand new to the technique or have been practising it for years.

Warum schmeckt gerade Apfel und Zimt so gut zusammen, Käse und Weintraube oder auch Schokolade und Chili? Die Antwort darauf liefert Niki Segnit mit ihrem Geschmacksthesaurus: Sie teilt 99 Lebensmittel in verschiedene Kategorien wie senfig, erdig, fruchtig, paart sie miteinander und kommentiert die Ergebnisse in kleinen unterhaltsamen Beiträgen. Da wird Gurke mit Minze kälter als ein Auftragskillerpärchen und Avocado mit Limette zu Lee Hazlewood und Nancy Sinatra, die »Some Velvet Morning« singen, wobei Lee die samtige Avocadonote beisteuert und Nancy den hohen Limettenton, der die Weichheit genau dann durchdringt, wenn es allzu gemütlich wird. Mit literarischen Anekdoten, leckeren Rezepten und persönlichen Präferenzen ist der Thesaurus eine gelungene Mischung aus Aromalexikon, Kochbuch und Reisebericht und eignet sich als unterhaltsame Bettlektüre ebenso wie als ernstzunehmende Rezeptesammlung.
