Acting and Reacting

Tools for the Modern Actor

By Nick Moseley

Paperback £12.99£10.39

An inspiring new approach to acting from a respected drama teacher - concise, succinct and full of practical exercises.

Nick Moseley's Acting and Reacting: Tools for the Modern Actor establishes a new, intensely practical actor-training system incorporating the best of Stanislavsky, David Mamet and Sanford Meisner.

Starting with the technique of Transactional Improvisation, it covers topics such as:

  • The World of the Play
  • Inhabiting the Space
  • Learning to Trust Your Body
  • Approaches to Text

The result is a punchy and empowering book intended to shake up ideas about acting. Each theory is tested and reinforced with games and exercises that stretch and challenge the student actor at each stage.

Acting and Reacting is a must for drama teachers and drama students alike.
