Yoshi Oida is completely unique. A Japanese actor and director who has
worked mainly in the West as a member of Peter Brook's theatre company
in Paris, he blends the oriental tradition of supreme and studied
control with the Western performer's need to characterise and expose
depths of emotion.

In
this practical and captivating study of the actor's art written with
Lorna Marshall, Yoshi Oida explains that once the audience becomes
openly aware of the actor's method and becomes too conscious of the
actor's artistry, the wonder of performance dies. The audience must
never see the actor but only his or her performance. Throughout Lorna
Marshall provides a running commentary on Yoshi Oida's work and methods
which help you understand the achievement of this singular theatrical
artist.

Review:

The Invisible Actor ... offers a series of specific theatrical exercises. Some of these will be familiar to those who have studied yoga or t'ai chi, but Oida gives his lessons an appealing, personal context. The suggested activities are woven together with wise and charming anecdotes.... -- The Los Angeles Times Sunday Book Review, Irene Oppenheim
