Books Info:

The Michael Chekhov Technique - A Complete Toolkit free pdf The Michael Chekhov Technique: A Complete Toolkit is a guide to the Michael Chekhov acting technique for actors, directors and teachers. It provides a complete overview of the whole method, offering clear explanations of the principles, practical exercises and application of the exercises to dramatic texts. The book is both a toolkit for practitioners who have not trained in the method, as well as a comprehensive reference book for those who have. Part One explains the concept of pyscho physical acting with reference to primary texts, interviews with Chekhov practitioners and a range of sample exercises to practise on. Part Two explores the more detailed work of creating a character with a selection of examples of how to apply the psycho-physical exercises in Part One directly to character or scene work. Also included are a selection of exercises taught by other practitioners (with their permission) that were not developed by Chekhov himself in his book, but which follow his principles and yield great results: the ghost exercise (Joanna Merlin), expanding and contracting the five senses (Lenard Petit), the palace of beauty (Mel Shrawder), the belief closet (Mel Shrawder), imaginative character biography on your feet (Mel Shrawder). The book will feature the application of Michael Chekhov principles throughout to characters and scenes in Gabriel Garcia Lorca's Blood Wedding and Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing.
