'All props should be priceless and precious onstage'
'The cast are the environment of K'
'In the end there is only the actor,
his body, his mind and voice... the
actor exists without the play... he can
improvise, be silent, mime, make
sounds and be a witness' - Berkoff
Three Theatre Manifesto's, 1978
'To express drama in the most vital way imaginable; to
perform at the height of one's powers with all the
available means. That is through the spoken word,
gesture, mime and music. Sometimes the emphasis on
one, sometimes on the other.' Berkoff and the London
group Mission Statement, 1973'
