An Acrobat of the Heart

A Physical Approach to Acting Inspired by the Work of Jerzy Grotowski

"The actor will do, in public, what is considered impossible." When the renowned Polish director Jerzy Grotowski began his 1967 American workshop with these words, his students were stunned. But within four weeks they themselves had experienced the "impossible." In An Acrobat of the Heart, teacher-director-playwright Stephen Wangh reveals how Jerzy Grotowski's physical exercises can open a pathway to the actor's inner creativity. Drawing on Grotowski's insights and on the work of Stanislavski, Uta Hagen, and others, Wangh bridges the gap between rigorous physical training and practical scene and character technique. Wangh's students give candid descriptions of their struggles and breakthroughs, demonstrating how to transform these remarkable lessons into a personal journey of artistic growth. Courageous and compelling, An Acrobat of the Heart is an invaluable resource for actors, directors, and teachers alike.

The Heart of Teaching is a book about teaching and learning in the performing arts. Its focus is on the inner dynamics of teaching: the processes by which teachers can promote--or undermine--creativity itself. It covers the many issues that teachers, directors and choreographers experience, from the frustrations of dealing with silent students and helping young artists 'unlearn' their inhibitions, to problems of resistance, judgment and race in the classroom,. Wangh raises questions about what can--and what cannot--be taught, and opens a discussion about the social, psychological and spiritual values that underlie the skills and techniques that teachers impart. Subjects addressed include: Question asking: which kinds of questions encourage creativity and which can subvert the learning process. Feedback: how it can foster both dependence and independence in students. Grading: its meaning and meaninglessness. Power relationships, transference and counter-transference The pivotal role of listening. The Heart of Teaching speaks to experienced teachers and beginning teachers in all disciplines, but is particularly relevant to those in the performing arts, from which most of its examples are drawn. It brings essential insight and honesty to the discussion of how to teach.

Das einführende Handbuch Theaterarbeit in sozialen Feldern/Theatre Work in Social Fields will eine künstlerische und soziale Arbeit, die sich immer mehr durchsetzt, fachlich fundieren. Das geschieht zuerst durch die Entfaltung von konzeptionellen und/oder theoretischen Grundlagen unter den Gesichtspunkten eines spielerischen, lebenslangen Lernens sowie der Berücksichtigung von Gesundheitsförderung und sozialer Feldarbeit mittels Theater. Ausführlich wird die Lern- und Lehrpraxis beschrieben. Damit verbunden sind Soziokulturelle Theaterformen und Zielgruppenspezifische Theaterarbeit. Es wird bewusst exemplarisch argumentiert, um den Übergang in weitere Praxis durch die LeserInnen zu erleichtern. Eine Literaturliste gibt Anregungen über die in den Beiträgen verarbeitete Literatur hinaus. In allen Kapiteln wird die im europäischen Kontext erprobte Theorie Praxis-Verbindung eingehalten.

In 1931, Miss Le Gallienne wrote "At 33" -- and then came the accident her hands so badly burned that there was the chance that her career might be finished. But a holiday in Europe, which included a job as a super in the Cirque d'Hiver in Paris, sent her home ready for the necessary operations and the hard work connected with the Civic Repertory Theatre on 14th Street. Her years since that time are filled with play production and fighting for an acting theatre along European lines and up to European standards of touring. Still in pursuit of the kind of theatre she dreamed of, her acting has been seen in revivals, modified versions of repertory, and vaudeville, along with a series of lectures. With the collapse of the Civic Repertory Theatre, she currently has no definite plans, and is settling into life in the countryside.
