Reviews

'This isn't merely the musings of a theatre director who never stops innovating. It is a global thinker's striking, historic way of understanding human nature from a surprisingly practical perspective, which can be adapted in countless areas at numerous levels.' -- Sun Huizhu, Professor of Drama, Shanghai Theatre Academy 'The text is very cleverly put together with a clear idea of how its features contribute to the reading of the material. I frankly cannot imagine it being done better.' -- Simon Shepherd, Central School of Speech and Drama, London 'A very effective summary of a lifetime of major creative and scholarly experiment.' -- New Theatre Quarterly
