The Training of Noh Actors: And, The Dove

Лицевая обложка
Psychology Press, 1998 - Всего страниц: 82
In "The Training of Noh Actors and The Dove", the second volume of his Mask: A Release of Acting Resources, David Griffiths provides a detailed view of the Japanese Noh theatre: historically, philosophically (with an evaluation of Zeami's treatises) and in respect of the rigorous practicalities of Noh training. The latter is given particular authority and insight because of the access Griffiths had to Noh actors in training and performance. Enhanced by the author's illustrations, this volume gives one of the most accessible introductions to Noh that is available in English. Appended to the descriptive and analytic material is a short play, The Dove, written by Griffiths (and subsequently professionally performed), described as "unashamedly" acknowledging its Noh influence. This one-woman piece is a drama with references to its cultural source.
