The vital building blocks of movement training – a key sourcebook for actors, directors, students and teachers.
In precise detail, Darley sets out the exercises and techniques she developed with her own drama-school students. She deals with the vital building blocks of movement training: awareness, relaxation, tension—particularly Lecoq’s Seven States—and suspension, before progressing to areas in which she was a pioneer: animal work, contact work, visual spacing, and the relationship between voice and movement.
