A practical, hands-on guide to Brecht's history and practice of theatre
The Complete Brecht Toolkit examines, one by one, Brecht's many, sometimes contradictory ideas about theatre
And how he put them into practice
It begins with explanations of all the famous key terms, such as Alienation Effect, Epic Theatre and Gestus, as well as many others which go to make up what we think of as 'Brechtian theatre'
There then follows a section which looks at the practical application of these theories in Acting, Language, Music, Design and Direction
And finally, the book offers 50 Exercises for student actors to investigate Brecht's ideas for themselves and implement the tools in The Complete Brecht toolkit
Written by one of the UK's leading theatre directors, it is an invaluable, lucid and informative guide for professionals and students alike
