Investigating a range of influential movement training practices, this ambitious book considers the significance of professional training to performers and their bodies. Performance training approaches are examined within their wider social and cultural contexts, illuminating their evolution in response to the changing context of theatre practice and production. Adopting a rigorous critical angle, Mark Evans’ approach is at the cutting-edge of Theatre scholarship, drawing on interviews with recognised practitioners and considering the implications for movement and the body in the digital age. 
Engaging and enlightening, this is essential reading for undergraduate and postgraduate students of Theatre, Drama and Performance wishing to understand and contextualise the theories behind performance training.

In this clear, well-argued call to challenge our assumptions about bodies in performance and to adapt our work to be more inclusive of difference, Mark Evans offers indispensable advice for making the human body a vibrant and conscious force in 21st-century entertainment. – Jeffrey Fracé, University of Washington, USA
Evans succeeds in shining a light on the way that the dynamic growth of actor movement and movement direction has impacted on a variety of performing art forms as wide ranging as circus, physical theatre, digital and virtual platforms. – Ayse Tashkiran, The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, UK
