Principles of Movement


From the writings of Keith Bain, Michael Campbell has collated a comprehensive course and reference guide for actors and performers on the principles and practice os Australia's great teachers of Movement. In simple language Bain lays out the secrets of self-knowledge that lie behind understanding the body an mind. 'Movement', he says, '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.'

"He had a profound effect on the way I conducted myself physically and in that sense he is with me all the time." - Richard Roxborough

"His teachings are the foundation of my technique." - Cate Blanchett

"He is one of the great mentors of my creative life." - Baz Luhrmann
