'Stimulating and intelligent' Yoshi Oida

Seventy percent of everyday conversation is conveyed through body
language, twenty percent is the voice and only ten percent is the
meaning of the words. In The Body Speaks, expert RADA trainer
Lorna Marshall, shows how to recognise and lose unwanted physical
inhibitions that our background, education or family have taught us and
presents a fundamental re-thinking of our relationship to the body and
its role in performance.

Good performers - be they trapeze artists, Shakespearean actors,
Butoh dancers or film stars - are able to fully reach their audience
and engage with them because they have learnt to use their bodies to
its best effect. Through a series of practical exercises, Lorna
Marshall encourages us to unleash our potential, discover new
possibility for the body and express ourselves more clearly. This new
edition has been fully revised to include the latest thinking on the
subject and more exercises particularly for performers in TV and film.
