"Action Theater is a true path to liberation: from self-binding and limiting concepts, from fear and mistrust. Working within the framework of Ruth's instructions, we can practice being spontaneously alive in a world that has not already been formed, where no script exists."
- Edward Espe Brown, Zen teacher and author of The Tassajara Bread Book
"Improvisation by its very nature is impossible to capture in words. There are few competent practitioners left in this cynical materialistic era. The need for "winging it" both on and off stage, of going out on a limb, "suspending disbelief," is of supreme importance particularly at this time. This is the value and healing property of improvisation, whether you're an artist or a business person. Ruth Zaporah is a master of this elusive and transformative art form. At last, after all these years we have a compendium of her exercises. This is a book of spells for your enchantment."
-John O'Keefe, playwright and actor, founding member, Blake Street Hawkeyes
"Those of us lucky enough to see Ruth Zaporah perform have anticipated this book with great eagerness. How has this genius of authenticity, this brilliance of spontaneity come into being? How does she do it? As countless students will tell you, Ruth Zaporah has been leading students in the direction of what she knows for a long time; she is an extraordinary teacher. And now, in a simple and wonderfully evocative telling, she has given us a record of how her work and its teaching takes place. This book will very soon become an indespensible classic, not only for studies in theater, but also inthe nature of life."
-Susan Griffin, author of A Chorus of Stones and The Eros of Everyday Life
Der Verlag über das Buch
An exploration of improvisation, as developed by the author
Each chapter of this book presents a single day of the twenty-day training which Ruth Zaporah developed into Action Theater, her investigation into the life-reflecting process of improvisation. This book shows through excercises, stories, anecdotes, and metaphors how to focus attention on the body's awareness of the present moment, moving away from preconceived ideas. Improvisations move through fear, boredom, laziness, and distraction to a sustained awareness of creative options.

I've dog marked it so many times.
Taking an improv class can be a risky thing if you get a bad teacher. Ruth knows her practice in and out, and knows all the important stuff to cover - including dealing with emotinal issues. She also communicates the exercises very sweetly and clearly. As a teacher, it's nice to have mediations written out so you don't have to think on the spot and still come across calmly and clearly. So if you're taking a class or teaching a class or aren't sure yet if you want to do either - get this book, and you'll have an intimate understanding of the form and lots of fun!
