A reading list

This was a list of suggested reading to gain a greater understanding of actor movement on stage. I'm currently overloaded with books to read (51 for a contest I'm judging, six that need reviews, and four about theater from the Institute), but once that clears up, these ones are on my list.

In the mean time, perhaps someone else can benefit from them:

  • Etienne Decroux, Words on Mime, Mime Journal, Claremont, CA.
  • Eugenio Barba, The Paper Canoe, Routledge 1995.
  • Eugenio Barba and Nicola Savarese, A Dictionary of Theatre Anthropology, Routledge.Thomas Leabhart, Modern and Post-Modern Mime, Macmillan and St. Martin’s Press.
  • Thomas Leabhart, Etienne Decroux, Routledge 2007.
  • Ted Shawn, Every Little Movement, Dance Horizons.
  • Franc Chamberlain and Thomas Leabhart, A Decroux Companion, Routledge (forthcoming 2008).
