This work presents, in his own words, the philosophy and teaching methods of Jacques Lecoq, founder of the world-famous International Mime and Theatre School, whose students have included Dario Fo, Ariane Mnouchkine of Theatre du Soleil, and Geoffrey Rush.;Lecoq sets out his unique architecture of the body in space and explains his most famous techniques, including neutral mask, acrobatics, and bouffons and the grotesque and play. He goes on to discuss the actor's approach to situation, character, environment, emotion, physical and vocal preparation, and, of course, movement.
