The profession of directing is barely a century old. On Directing considers the position of the director in theater and performance today. What is a director? How do they begin work on a play or performance? What methods are used in rehearsal? Is the director an enabler, a collaborator or dictator? As we enter the new millennium, is the very concept of directing under increasing threat from changes in thinking and practice? The full diversity of today's approaches to directing are explored through a series of interviews with leading contemporary practitioners. On Directing is a landmark book about the director's craft.

About the Author:

Gabriella Giannachi is Lecturer in Theatre Studies at Lancaster University, U.K.

Mary Luckhurst is a playwright, translator and Lecturer in Modern Drama at York University, U.K.

From Library Journal:

Peter Brook, one of the most respected experimental theater directors of the 20th century, provides the connective link between these two books. On Directing (edited by British theater scholars Giannachi and Luckhurst) is a collection of interviews with 21 mid-career British directors, most of whom are unknown to American audiences. The book tries to pin down the state of stage directing in British theater in the 1990s. Although the directors draw from a variety of doctrines and methods, an overwhelming percentage of them credit Brook (who also wrote the preface) with providing inspiration for their work. Carefully edited by actor and acting teacher Moffitt, Between Two Silences is a transcription of Brook's several days' residency with a group of actors, directors, designers, and students from Southern Methodist University and neighboring theaters. These sessions show Brook at his most familiarAelegant and thoughtful. But occasionally, his wealth of experience illuminates his ideas in new ways. Recommended for public and academic libraries, especially those with special collections in theater.AThomas E. Luddy, Salem State Coll., MA
