Abstract

This book documents the non-verbal, codified theatre tradition of Corporeal Mime passed from teacher to student in a way almost unknown in the West, but common in many Asian countries. Whereas the West’s classical dance has a history of nearly four centuries, Corporeal Mime was created in the twentieth century. Etienne Decroux (1898-1991), the founder and creator of this living tradition, taught for six decades. Many of his students still practise and teach his work which subverts the prevailing paradigm: text-based theatre.
