This is the book that articulates the principles behind the Frank Suzuki Performance Aesthetics (FSPA), developed by John Nobbs and Jacqui Carroll as a western variant of the Suzuki Actor Training Method (SATM). It is the first book to explain aspects of the SATM in terms that western actors can easily understand.
The SATM is regarded as the most systematic actor training system yet devised and Frankly Acting explains the exercises that John Nobbs has created as extensions and translations of the it. Written in an anecdotal, easy to read style ,this is the book that demystifies what is often seen as a Japanese 'acting style', demonstrating that when fused with western elements, this type of training can be the most practical and imaginative tool for developing actors and theatre in the world today.
John Nobbs, following an extensive career in modern dance, has utilised his curiosity, eclectic experiences, filtered through a highly developed kinesthetic knowledge to articulate the uniquely east/west actor training system that draws on wide ranging contemporary and classical elements.
