In The Actor's Way four experienced actors talk about the secrets and the practical realities of theatre training. Under the unique direction of EUgenio Barba, director of Odin Teatret and protege of Jerzy Grotowski, they explore issues such as the connections between physical and mental work on stage, how to gain and control the spectator's attention, and intercultural performance techniques. In interview with Erik Exe Christoffersen they provide the fullest account yet of Odin Teatret's path-breaking combination of European and Asian Theatre. Linking traditions of Commedia dell'Arte to Indian Kathkali dance, these actors have been at the forefront of a genuinely new kind of performance. The Actor's Way is a fascinating account of personal and professional development in the theatre.
