"The Open Door" in Iran
"The Open Door: Thoughts on Acting and Theatre" a book by Peter Brook has been rendered into Persian by Behrang Farhang-doost. The work is marketed in Iran by Afraz.
IBNA: In The Open Door the visionary director and theorist offers a lucid, comprehensive exposition of the philosophy that underlies his work.
It is a philosophy of paradoxes: We come to the theatre to find life, but that life must be different from the life we find outside. Actors have to prepare painstakingly yet be willing to sacrifice the results of their preparation. The director’s most reliable tool may be his capacity to be bored. Brook illustrates these principles with anecdotes that span his entire career and that demonstrate his familiarity with Shakespeare, Chekhov, and the indigenous theatres of India and Iran.
The result is an unparalleled look at what happens both onstage and behind the scenes, fresh in its insights and elegant in its prose, Amazon says.
