about this item

Questions of consciousness and being go to the heart of drama: in order to ‘use’ conscious action for representation, we need to understand it and find out how it works in the creative process.

This book provides a clear and accessible introduction to the key concepts of phenomenology in relation to theatre, showing how they shed light on the works of influential theatre-makers, such as Brecht, Artaud and Stanislavski. By putting these concepts into dialogue with theatre-makers, Johnston is able to demonstrate how philosophical ideas work with theatre, and how we can approach difficult theory from a practical perspective. Each chapter features exercises and topics for discussion to encourage readers to explore the ideas presented in more depth, making it an excellent resource for undergraduate and postgraduate students of theatre, performance studies and philosophy.
