A great actor can bring us to tears without saying a word. What makes the actor great? Total physical awareness - it's what every actor needs to seize the creative moment and steal the show. Veteran acting trainer David Zinder has spent a career helping actors at all stages of their careers fine-tune their stage presence and harness their talent through a unique series of exercises that hone the actor's fundamental expressive tools - the body, the voice and the imagination. Drawing upon the proven methods of David Zinder's workshops and acting classes, Body Voice Imagination teaches a set of skills so that the actor can be ready to perform at his or her highest level of creativity. Organized with a practitioners' theoretical and aesthetic concerns in mind, the exercises in this volume build on the link between technique and inspiration, providing a practical overview of Zinder's Logic of Training that lends from the bases of physical awareness, to advanced non-vocal and vocal imagery improvisations, to the fundamentals of the Chekhov school of acting.
