Samenvatting

Keith Johnstone entered the Royal Court Theatre as a new playwright in 1956: a decade later he emerged as a groundbreaking director and teacher of improvisation. His decisive book Impro (1979), described Johnstone's unique system of training: weaving together theories and techniques to encourage spontaneous, collaborative creation using the intuition and imagination of the actors. Johnstone has since become world-renowned, inspiring theatre greats and beginners alike; and his work continues to influence practice within and beyond the traditional theatre. Theresa Robbins Dudeck is the first author to rigorously examine Johnstone's life and career using a combination of archival documents - many from Johnstone's personal collection - participant observation, and interviews with Johnstone, his colleagues and former students. Keith Johnstone: A Critical Biography is a fascinating journey through the physical spaces that have served as Johnstone's transformative classrooms, and into the conceptual spaces which inform his radical pedagogy and approach to artistic work.

    Excerpt from a letter to the author:

    '..I just finished your biography on Keith Johnstone and it filled my heart with joy and -I don't know how to describe the other feelings- melancholy perhaps. I have attended the first international summerschool in 1989, after having met Keith in The Netherlands, one or two years before. He has profoundly influenced my personal and career life and I owe him my great gratitude.
    Your book made again clear what an astonishing teacher Keith is an how consitent and coureageous he has fought for his ideas. Your book is a huge contribution-and also beautiful written, even for a nonenglish speaker- and deserves a large audience all over the world..'
