As stage and screen artists explore new means to enhance their craft, a new wave of interest in expressive movement and physical improvisation has developed. In Bringing the Body to the Stage and Screen, Annette Lust provides these artists with a program of physical and related expressive exercises that can empower their art with more creativity. In her book, Lust offers a general introduction to movement, how to conduct a class or learn on one's own, learning programs that cover the use of basic physical and expressive exercises for the entire body, original solo and group pantomimes, improvisational exercises, examples of plays, fiction, poetry, and songs that may be interpreted with movement, a list of training centers in America and Europe, and an extensive bibliography and videography. In addition, Lust includes fifteen interviews and essays by prominent stage and screen actors, mimes, clowns, dancers, and puppeteers who describe the importance of movement in their art, and dozens of photos of renowned world companies and artists.
