9781305077447: Acting: Onstage and Off

Demonstrating how offstage performance can be effectively adapted for the theatre, as well as how onstage training can be applied toward leading a full life outside the theatre, ACTING: ONSTAGE AND OFF, 7e is a humorous yet informative book that discusses the interplay between life on and off the stage. It teaches you all phases of actor training, including scene study, auditioning, observation, and mind, voice and body relaxation techniques. "Breathing for Change" exercises help you practice altering your physical and emotional state to perform, while "Partner Rapport" provides strategies for connecting with other actors in your scene. In addition, words of wisdom from a variety of successful classic and contemporary actors give you valuable insight from seasoned and up-and-coming performers alike.

About the Author:

Robert Barton is Professor Emeritus of Acting at the University of Oregon. He has directed more than half of Shakespeare's plays and performed in most of them, including playing the title role in a PBS production of HAMLET. A prolific author, Dr. Barton has published numerous scholarly articles on acting and seven books, including VOICE: ONSTAGE AND OFF (with Rocco Dal Vera), THEATRE IN YOUR LIFE and LIFE THEMES (both with Annie McGregor), and ACTING REFRAMES. His STYLE FOR ACTORS received the Theatre Association's Best Book Award. In addition, he served as editor and adaptor of the newly revised edition of the classic text THE CRAFT OF COMEDY. The American College Theatre Festival honored Dr. Barton as Outstanding Acting Coach. He received his Ph.D. from Bowling Green State University.

Review:

"A highly practical approach to acting: A rich depth and breadth of exercises for the students; ACTING ONSTAGE AND OFF gives students an excellent introduction to the Stanislavski system..."

"I think it's the best text on the market."

"... ACTING ONSTAGE AND OFF provides a springboard in which 'course objectives meets in-class application.'"
