Stage Fighting

Stage Fighting: A Practical Guide by Jonathan Howell, 4/5

This is an efficient, well-illustrated book.  The most interesting thing I learned is the idea that, in order to create tension, the roles of victim and aggressor are reversed, as far as control of the action is concerned.  For example, in a strangling scene, the aggressor is trying to pull his hands away from the victim’s throat, while the victim is trying to hold the aggressor’s hands in place.
