New revised and changed edition of the previous book "Anatomie de l'acteur". The results of research into theatre anthropology at ISTA 1980 - 95. The book subtly juxtaposes the visual demonstrations of the performer’s craft, from a wealth of Oriental and Occidental sources, to uncover knowledge of action in the heightened context of performance – from combat to religion and ritual. Whereas most Western research is concerned with naturalism and psychological realism in acting, the Dictionary focuses on the performer’s arduous and eclectic craft.
