The Performer's Portable Workshop
Tony Montanaro
Tilbury House
$19.95, paper; 254 pages
Student of Marcel Marceau and his teacher, Etienne Decroux, Montanaro has been a performer for 40 years and a noted teacher of mime for 20. In this text he introduces the basic concepts about the "eloquent gesture." In this book the performer is encouraged to bring together a vision of what one wants to project and a recognition of what the audience actually sees. It is a good general introduction to basic mime techniques.
