by Keith Bain and Michael Campbell
Foreword by Cate Blanchett
With contributions by Geoffrey Rush, Baz Luhrmann, Miranda Otto and Hugo Weaving amongst others.
From the writings of Keith Bain, Michael Campbell has collated a step-by-step course for students and teachers on the principles and practice of Australia’s great teacher of Movement. In simple language he lays out the secrets of self-knowledge that lie behind understanding the body and mind. ‘Movement’, says Bain, ‘is both how we move and what moves us, Movement is the look in our eyes, the tensions and the tone in our muscles, our breathing, our thinking, our longings and fears. Movement has equal concern for the inner and outer aspects, with each clarifying the other.’
Baz Luhrmann: ‘He is one of the great mentors of my creative life.’
Cate Blanchett: 'His teachings are the foundation of my technique.’
