More Thoughts on Gestus

Just a quick post to note that I’ve added a paragraph to the Gestus page. This, in part, is an addition made after reading a draft of David Zoob’s insightful and eye-opening book, Brecht: A Practical Handbook. Here he includes a Glossary. I realized, when offering thoughts on his entries for Gestus and Haltung, that Gestus is such a slippery term that it requires particular attention to grasp its many possible meanings – hence the additional paragraph.

I’m not sure when Zoob’s book will be out, but it will certainly provide students and theatre-makers with some very valuable material for rehearsing dramatic theatre from a Brechtian perspective.
