Walking the Tightrope
Film

 

“The actor’s gift,” according to the director and theatrical sage Peter Brook, “is the connection between pure imagination and the body itself.” His special exercise Tightrope makes theatre real and new for actor and audience alike. In this quietly eloquent and unique film shot through the lens of five hidden cameras, director Simon Brook, his son, reveals how the Tightrope, a special exercise designed by Peter, works its dramatic alchemy. Peter would also talk about his theatrical ideas in this documentary.
