Acting and how to survive it
This book is any actor’s one-stop shop for everything they might need to know about acting – the craft, the profession, and the life. Here’s the skinny on not only to survive your time as an actor, but thrive at it.
Designed for actors at all stages of their career, Acting and How to Survive It takes you on an essential journey from building a technique to the nuts and bolts of auditions and self-tests, and finally the prosaic realities of the job. Also included are ideas and inspiration around winning the head game and living a creative life of integrity and resilience.
Tailored to the New Zealand and Australian actor, there’s plenty of local detail, but also an international viewpoint across theatre, TV and film.
Acting and How to Survive It is the culmination of a quarter century of performing, teaching and investigation. Peter Feeney brings together the best of traditional approaches with the very latest practical know-how.
Exacting and inspirational, this book is every actors must-have.
‘Peter is a very gifted actor who will always be genuinely interested in exploring his work and finding new approaches to it, and opening this out to his fellow actors.’
