Peter Brook: The Tightrope
The Tightrope: Director Peter Brook Shares His Secrets in Documentary
Imagine if you could watch Picasso give a painting lesson, or hear Mozart discuss composing with young musicians. The Tightrope
is an acclaimed documentary that captures a masterclass of similar distinction. Peter Brook, the man whom The New York Times
calls "the world's most eminent director," has long been considered the ultimate authority on acting and performance. Never before however -- and Brook is nearly 90 -- has he allowed cameras to film him sharing his revolutionary techniques with actors. Directed by his son, Simon Brook, this extraordinary film captures Brook teaching his famed exercise, "The Tightrope," a process of transformation that makes theater real and new for the actor and audience alike. Catch this acclaimed film at Symphony Space's Leonard Nimoy Thalia.
