Abstract:

This chapter explores the Ecole International de Theatre Jacques Lecoq in Paris as an example of a Theatre Studio. It charts the development of the Studio movement in Moscow and Paris in the early twentieth century through the work of Stanislavsky, Meyerhold and Copeau, and frames Lecoq's practice in the context of the legacy of their work. Ultimately, it argues that, by combining explorations of occluded theatre histories with ideas from contemporary culture, and by focusing on the psychophysical space of the body, the pedagigic space between training and experimental practice, and the creative space between fredom and discipline, Lecoq' s school was the most influential and significant twentieth-century incarnation of the ideals of the Studio tradition.
