A fundamental rethinking of our relationship to the body and its role in performance Seventy percent of everyday conversation is conveyed through body language, twenty percent is the voice and only ten percent is the meaning of the words. In The Body Speaks Lorna Marshall shows how to recognise and lose unwanted physical inhibitions that our background, education or family have taught us. Good performers - be they trapeze artists, Shakespearean actors, Butoh dancers or film stars - are able to fully reach their audience and engage with them because they have learnt to use their bodies to its best effect. Lorna Marshall encourages us to unleash our potential and express ourselves more clearly.
