The games described in this invaluable handbook are all designed to enable anyone involved in acting to develop their technique without inhibition or artificiality. As a professional actor, director and drama teacher, Clive Barker has developed his "theatre games" system over the years and proved its effectiveness for teaches, students and actors alike.
"Clive Barker's book is more than just a guidebook of improvisational games for actors: it is, rather a comprehensive exploration of acting techniques" New York Theatre Review
"Theatre Games is a massive contribution to the art of theatre A bulging portfolio of credo, craft, advice and instruction, strapped tight with sound definition It is dazzlingly astute and a thrilling read - quite unlike a text-book, rather a long, fascinating chat into the small hours" The Stage
In this book Clive Barker introduces a concept of "Body Think" - a new concept at that time when he wrote this book, and a concept that is meant as a practical way to deal with the kind of non-logical-thinking that an actors has to work with. Since then people like Howard Gardner has introduced theories about 'Multiple Intelligence's' which has gained a general acceptance all over the world. Clive Barkers writings about the actors use of 'Body Think' gives additional information to what Howard Garner calls 'Spatial Intelligence' and ''Bodily- kinaesthetic Intelligence'. It can probably be very useful to read Clive Barkes book alongside Howard Gardners books (Frames of Mind, The Arts and Human Development, Multiple Intelligence - The Theory in Practice). Also Daniel Goleman's book on Emotional Intelligence might be a good companion.
Clive Barker's book is a very good book that presents theoretical concepts as well as practical methods that makes sense in the daily practical work of an actor. In many ways this book is much more useful than the famous books of Stanislavsky.
