A book for actors, directors, students and teachers of movement in the theatre, "The Space to Move" is bursting with energy and ideas, passion and commitment. In it, the author describes an inspiring series of sessions and encounters which fellow movement teachers will wish to take as the basis of their own teaching. This book will quickly become a key sourcebook on movement training. In precise detail Darley sets out, step by step, the exercises and techniques she developed with her own students at LAMDA, dealing with the vital building blocks of movement training. The volume as a whole cannot fail to inspire and instruct everyone wanting to incorporate movement into actor-training or theatre work in general.
CHRISTIAN DARLEY read classics at Oxford and trained in movement in Paris, before teaching at LAMDA from 1993 onwards, where she was movement director on many productions there and elsewhere. She also conducted various community workshops and took her work into prisons and schools. She died in her forties in 2008 just after completing this book
