Hurt Embodied Actor Training
Arthur Lessac’s Embodied Actor Training By Melissa Hurt
Arthur Lessac’s Embodied Actor Training situates the work of renowned voice and movement trainer Arthur Lessac in the context of contemporary actor training. Supported by the work of Constantin Stanislavsky and Maurice Merleau-Ponty’s theories of embodiment, the book explores Lessac’s practice in terms of embodied acting, a key subject in contemporary performance. In doing so, the author explains how the actor can come to experience both skill and expression as a subjective whole through active meditation and spatial attunement.
