Antonin Artaud

Published by Alma Classics

The most radical text on performance in print today from the legendary French playwright, poet and director

He redefines the nature and purpose of drama, what the theatrical reaction of audiences should be - an experience to shake their certainty of everyday existence - and how actors should approach their work

It has inspired many of our leading theatre practitioners, particularly Peter Brook, Grotowski & the Royal Shakespeare Company
