Drawing on her extensive background as a mime, dancer, choreographer, director, and teacher, Bari Rolfe examines how stage movement should be tailored to suit the period of the play. As well as examining the times, the clothing, the customs and manners of historical eras from the Greeks to the Edwardians, the author discusses how people greeted one another and their dances. Exercises are suggested for developing confidence in each era as well as for developing characterizations to suit the period of the play.
