Rate this:
The second volume in the Stage by Stage series, exploring the development of Eastern stagecraft. In this second volume of the Stage by Stage series, Philip Freund takes us beyond the barriers of culture and language to introduce us to the theatrical traditions and stagecraft of India, China, Japan, Korea, and the many independent lands surrounding them. He describes the challenges that exponents of both Eastern and Western drama are facing as our cultures clash, and, at the same time, demonstrates how the impulse to dramatize our experience is universal. This comprehensive account will help Western audiences to gain a better understanding of Oriental drama and will greatly enrich the resources available to those who work in the theater.
