The Shifting Point - Forty Years of Theatrical Exploration 194687 - Second Edition

Peter Brook Price: $26.95

"Theatre only exists at the precise moment when these two worlds - that of the actors and that of the audience - meet - a society in miniature, a microcosm brought together every evening within a space. Theatre's role is to give this microcosm a burning and fleeting taste of another world, in which our present world is integrated and transformed" ~ Peter Brook

Hailed as "the theatrical event of this century" (Sunday Times), Peter Brook's unique dramatisation of India's great epic poem, The Mahabharata played to ecstatic audiences worldwide

In this Second Edition of The Shifting Point - his first book since The Empty Space - Brook assesses the lessons of his pioneering work from his brilliant debut at Stratford and the West End in the 1960s to the triumphant success of The Mahabharata

With the bravura and insight of a great practitioner and explorer he reveals some of the inspiration behind his extraordinary career


"The great thing about Brook is that, in a medium where others provide answers, he keeps asking questions. This sage and stimulating book shows that, inside a sophisticated adult mind, lurks the intemperate curiosity of a child; which is the mark of genius" ~ Michael Billington
