Bloomsbury, Methuen Drama, Great Britain 2019. 246 pages, illus. In English. ISBN 978-1-4742-5398-7

This volume provides a fresh assessment of the pioneering practices of theatre directors Jerzy Grotowski, Peter Brook and Eugenio Barba, whose work has challenged and extended ideas about what theatre is and does. 
Contributors demonstrate how each was instrumental in rethinking and reinventing theatre's possibilities: where it takes place - whether in theatres or beyond - and who the audience might then be, as well as how actors train and perform, highlighting the importance of the group and collaboration.
The volume examines their role in establishing intercultural dialogues and practices, and the wider influence of this work on theatre. Consideration is also given to each director's documentation of their practice in print and film and the influence this has had on 21st-century performance. 

In the volume: The Tree of Performance Knowledge: Eugenio Barba, by Annelis Kuhlmann and Adam J. Ledger.
