[ epub pdf ] Theatre and MindAuthor B. McConachie – Mariahilff.de

All performance depends upon our abilities to create, perceive, remember, imagine and empathize This book provides an introduction to the evolutionary and cognitive foundations of theatrical performing and spectating and argues that this scientific perspective challenges some of the major assumptions about what takes place in the theatre

    This whole series is excellent and McConachie s Theatre is really wonderful in describing acting and spectating from the perspective of cognitive science His analyses are also useful for film Although theatre artists have been exploring neuroscience, McConachie explains why it s taken so long for theatre studies to take this step Highly recommend.
