A TOUCHSTONE BOOK Published by Simon & Schuster. Schuster Inc. A man walks across this empty space whilst someone else is watch-ing him, and this is all that is needed for an act of theatre to be engaged.

The Empty Space is a 1968 book by the British director Peter Brook examining four modes or points of view on theatre: Deadly; Holy; Rough; and Immediate. The book is based on a series of four lectures endowed by Granada Television and delivered at Manchester, Keele, Hull, and Sheffield Universities in England. The first lecture, on The Deadly Theatre, was delivered on 1 February 1965 at Manchester University. The lecture series helped to fund his long-planned trip to Afghanistan.

Yet when we talk about theatre this is not quite what we mean. Red curtains, spotlights, blank verse, laughter, darkness, these are all confusedly superimposed in a messy image covered by one all-purpose word.

A man walks across an empty space whilst someone else is watching him, and this is all that is needed for an act of theatre to be engaged. Just like Jerzy Grotowski, Peter brook puts a lot of efforts to actors’ training. This theory is extremely influenced by poor theatre which requires no props and set and aims to eliminate the division between actors and audience, creating a communion between the two. He even has a special exercise for actors called the tightrope which evolves experimentation and practice to make theatre real and establish the bridge between audience and actors.

Be careful. This book could change your life. It changed mine. I read The Empty Space in 1974. I was so blown away by the ideas within this book, I quit my job, moved to a large metropolitan area, and ended up running a theater, directing plays in other theaters, then teaching theater for the next twenty years. What this book does is teach important lessons in creating and appreciating art. Upon rereading The Empty Space, I find some of the writing to be a bit pretentious, but on the whole, the lessons are solid. Whether exploring theater, literature, art, music, or any other creative endeavor, this books shows that experiencing an artistic event can and should be a transformative experience. What is particularly refreshing is it doesn't sugar-coat the arts. There is no formula or how-to instructions on creating good work. Risk is not only encouraged, it is necessary. Brook also shows how the arts can be manipulated to lull and pacify. The four essays/lectures on Deadly Theater, Holy Theater, Rough Theater, and Immediate Theater are as fresh to day as they were 40 years ago.

A distinguished actor and director offers his beliefs about theatrical productions and the important role of theatre in our lived. Highly recommended if you are a "theatre junkie," as I am. Thoughtful discussion by someone who is immersed up to his neck in the processes about which he writes. Highly recommended

I enjoyed this book immensely when I was young, so I recently gave it to my son, a budding filmmaker. He couldn't stop talking about it. Nice to know it stands up to time and new generations.

What is great about the empty space is that Peter Brook's theory is relevant to all art forms. The four theatres he describes are basically categories in which all art falls into. This seems odd at first until you see what he is describing. What turns most people off is the idea of over-categorizing art. But Brook's theatres tend to be more or less critiques of individual performances, or what the effect of that performance is on the audience. This is also easy to read. Too much theatre philosophy gets bogged down by either melodramatic thespian writers, or rambling philosophies from those who have not trained themselves to ge good writers. With Brook, it is pretty straightforawrd, not always easy to understand mind you, but straightforward. If you are at all interested in the arts then this is a must read.

I'm a playwright, poet, and novelist (most recent novel is THE MAGIC HOUSE). For any playwright, actor, director this book is essential reading. The notions of immediate and holy theaters are extraordinary, approaching the level of pure poetry. I highly recommend this book.
Flathan
Peter Brook's powerful work is the greatest book written about the theater in recent time. The reading is packed with insights and strong assertions. It cannot be overlooked. Even today, nearly fifty years after it was written, the work compels us forward to a greater understanding of the what theater should be, not what it has become.
Whitescar
Good books about theatre in general are rare, at least in my perspective. This book is one of the rare ones--it is thought-provoking, illuminating and inspiring. I read this at a time where I was somewhat burned-out on theatre, and it re-inspired me. Brook has a way of writing in general terms, but in a personal and interesting way. I would recommend this to anyone interested in today's theatre.
This book retains it magic and insight generations after being published. There are few books in the theatre theory/crit section that are just as useful, informative, insightful and powerful as this one. Go ahead, restore your faith in theatre. I did.
