About this product
- DescriptionWhy do actors get stage fright? What is so embarrassing about joining in? Why t work with animals and children, and why is it so hard t to collapse into helpless laughter when things go wrong? In trying to answer these questions - usually igred by theatre scholarship but of enduring interest to theatre professionals and audiences alike - Nicholas Ridout attempts to explain the relationship between these apparently unwanted and amalous phemena and the wider social and political meanings of the modern theatre. This book focuses on the theatrical encounter - those events in which actor and audience come face to face in a strangely compromised and alienated intimacy - arguing that the modern theatre has become a place where we entertain ourselves by experimenting with our feelings about work, social relations and about feelings themselves.
