For the very first time in 40 years, Peter Brook, one of the foremost directors of contemporary theatre, has agreed to raise the curtain and allow his son Simon Brook to film behind the scenes and to reveal the secrets of his revolutionary training techniques. This unique and personal film takes us beyond the intimacy of a workshop, into a philosophical experience, on a tightrope...


Filmed in total immersion, with five hidden cameras, The Tightrope plunges the audience into the intimate aspects of Peter Brook's work, as well as that of his acting troupe, to illuminate the collaborative creative processes that have shaped Peter Brook's philosophy of art and made his work a monumental critical success.
