A Director Prepares: Seven Essays on Art and Theatre

by Anne Bogart - £27.99  Taylor and Francis (2001)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780415238328 | ISBN 10: 0415238323

A Director Prepares aims to offer a thought-provoking examination of the challenges of making theatre. In it, Anne Bogart speaks candidly of the courage required to create "art with great presence".
Each chapter tackles one of the seven major areas Bogart has identified as both potential partner and potential obstacle to art-making: violence; memory; terror; eroticism; stereotype; embarrassment; and resistance. Each one can be used to generate extraordinary creative energy, if we know how to use it.
A Director Prepares offers every practitioner an insight into the creative process.
