Pressestimmen

"Her book is the bible." --Rob Reiner


"It's like basic research ... she [has] changed the theater for generations." --Alan Alda


"She has genius and shares it." --Valerie Harper

Synopsis

This work has inspired the work of countless actors, directors, and writers in theatre, television and film. Spolin's improvisational techniques have changed the very nature and practice of modern theatre. This third edition updates the more than 200 now-classic exercises and adds 30 new ones. It adds 30 traditional theatre games that are frequently used as warm-ups. It includes Spolin's explanations of key concepts crucial to her programme, and collects "The Sayings of Viola Spolin" and adds a glossary of phrases for teachers and directors, with Spolin's definitions of their meaning and value. Most significantly, though, this edition makes available "The Lone Actor". In this section, Spolin offers games for individuals to play when they are alone. It is an important piece that should expand Spolin's teachings and influence to an entirely new audience.

Format: Taschenbuch
For serious students and teachers this is the basic bible of improvisation. It gives a strong, basic philosophy of improv for both teachers and actors. It contains methods, games and a variety of techniques to develop oneself both as a teacher & and actor. Step-by-step approaches are offered as well as overviews for ones own creativity. The book is well-organized, too so that the teacher/actor can easily access a favorite warm-up,beginning game or advanced exercise. Not a book for skimming! One must study this book, that is if you truly love the theatre!

Its not only for the life on stage, its also for the life of everyday situation. This theatre-actors guide gives psychological insights of all kind for people who want to be more aware of what pulls and pushes us to act or resist to act.

4.0 von 5 Sternen If Viola Spolin is the Grandma Moses of Improv, This is its Bible 2. Juli 2014
Von Anon Ymous - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
If Viola Spolin is the Grandma Moses of Improv, this is its Bible. If you own this book, Truth in Comedy by Del Close and Chana Halpern as well as the long awaited and recently published UCB Comedy Improvisation Manual by Matt Besser, Ian Roberts and Matt Walsh: you've pretty much got your literature covered in the area of improvisation for stage, film and television, including short form and long form, i. e. the Harold. Read these books, any and/or all of them, form a casual or professional improv group and start performing. Each is these books has excersizes and theater games that will help and inspire any professional or aspiring actor, writer, director, musician, comedian and basically any human being who communicates with other life forms of any kind.

The wealth of knowledge available in this book and the others mentioned above are priceless for creative person, especially those working in theater, film and television.

Buy this book and the other two, read them and use what you learn from them, your life will never be the same.

Here's a beautiful quote from the book:

"Everyone can act. Everyone can improvise. Anyone who wishes to can play in the theater and learn to become 'stage-worthy.' We learn through experience and experiencing, and no one teaches anyone anything...If the environment permits it, anyone can learn whatever he chooses to learn; and if the individual permits it, the environment will teach him everything it has to teach. 'Talent' or 'lack of talent' have little to do with it." - Viola Spolin

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Modern Theatrical Benchmark 8. April 2002
Von Kevin L. Nenstiel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
It is important to realize, before purchasing "Improvisation for the Theater," that it will not teach you the silly games and clownish humor you see on "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" Funny though many people find that show, it bears only a shirt-tail relationship to improvisation as Viola Spolin conceived of the concept.

First of all, she probably would have been horrified to discover that many people now regard improvisation and comedy synonymous. In her system, improvisation could have been comedic, tragic, surrealistic, or anything in between. The label hung on the performance was secondary to its quality, consistency, and depth.

In this, Spolin's classic textbook (newly updated and expanded by her son and daughter-in-law, her intellectual executors and heirs), she lays down the ins and outs of improvisation for performance. Activities listed in this book are designed to conduct a full workshop for improvisational actors. There are games listed for absolute beginners, orienting them to the demands of the stage, so there is no false expectation of prior experience. The games, moreover, are almost all adaptable to all ages, so a children's workshop won't feel you're going over their heads, and an adult workshop won't feel they're being condescended to.

The chapters are arranged in the sequence Spolin felt would be most efficient in creating a fully-dimensional improv show that would capture audience attention and be satisfying for all involved. Not everyone will agree that this is the best sequence, and with a little time and consideration, the games can be reordered to suit an individual director's tastes. However, this should be undertaken with care -- many people have used this workshop pattern very effectively for over forty years with great success and enjoyment.

The games, moreover, can be used individually, both in classrooms and in a theatrical directing environment. Many of the games teach important skills regarding vocal technique, character-motivated action, attention to environmental detail, and poise. Even when working with experienced actors, I have found many of these games useful in developing wholly realized characters and environments, and the group nature of the work is key in creating unity among cast members and ensuring everybody is playing off the same rules.

I have worked with scarcely an acting coach or director who has not, at some point, used some activity from this book to achieve some goal. By having actors participate in these activities, the whole production is moved toward a unified and consistent goal, usually one that cannot be achieved by mere talking and finger-pointing. Complex variations of these games are used by improvisational troupes throughout the world, and Spolin's teachings have really been the benchmark for theatrical education and directing for nearly half a century now.

No actor who wants to grow in skill, no acting teacher who wants to guide students toward higher ability, no director who wants to achieve results quickly and well, should ever be without this book. It is the measure of greatness in modern theatre.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Key Text for Living 18. Dezember 2014
Von Gregory Stone - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The master text for improvisation. I had the pleasure of meeting Spolin years ago, and working on a couple games with her. She was brilliant in her understanding of the human soul. Most people do not realize these exercises were originally intended, not for actors, but for orphans and troubled children. The heart of Viola Spolin comes through in this excellent work. Highly recommended.
