A Journey into the Organic Process of the Art of Transformation
SOLO PERFORMANCE ON STAGE by Ronald Rand, Goodwill Cultural Ambassador and world-acclaimed solo performer in 25 countries takes the reader on an intimate journey into the organic process of creating your own solo performance on stage through the ‘Art of Transformation’ using Stanislavsky’s “Method of Physical Actions.”
The theater is a transcendent communication of the human spirit, flowing from the passion of all those creating in collaboration with each other. Transformation is the embodiment of our joy of being alive.
Christopher Plummer calls SOLO TRANSFORMATION ON STAGE “An unforgettable journey of passion, insight and discovery!”
Stephen Lang writes in his Foreword “An astonishing outpouring of energy and experience. Ronald Rand brings a way to seek out a greater realization of what life means to you, putting into words what every actor feels in their heart; that what we do is as crucial to life as bread, fire, or salt. A noble and useful book.”
Step inside Ronald Rand’s two-hour transformation into Harold Clurman – how a solo performance is born, takes off and literally changes the face of the world! Experience his insightful experiences with Stella Adler, Harold Clurman, and Jerzy Grotowski, and life-changing ‘moments of depth’ from some of the world’s memorable performers including Cicely Tyson, Paul Robeson, Ira Aldridge, James Earl Jones, Sidney Poitier, Laurette Taylor, and Marlon Brando.
