An Acrobat of the Heart

A Physical Approach to Acting, Inspired by Grotowski


"Stephen Wangh is a wonderful acting teacher. He has distilled his life's study of the actor's body in the creative act into a practical journey for the reader. Best of all, the book is a useful guide for an actor's daily work in the studio." - Anne Bogart, director In An Acrobat of the Heart, teacher-director-playwright Stephen Wangh reveals how Jerzy Grotowski's physical exercises can open a pathway to the actor's inner creativity. Drawing on Grotowski's insights and on the work of Stanislavski, Uta Hagen, and others, Wangh bridges the gap between rigorous physical training and practical scene and character technique. Wangh's students give candid descriptions of their struggles and breakthroughs, demonstrating how to transform these remarkable lessons into a personal journey of artistic growth. Courageous and compelling, An Acrobat of the Heart is an invaluable resource for actors, directors, and teachers alike.
