The Michael Chekhov Handbook – Lenard Petit

Por Revisar

‘Petit’s words go right to the heart of Chekhov’s technique… Anyone looking for a key to understanding more about Michael Chekhov’stechnique will devour it.’ – Jessica Cerullo, Michael Chekhov Association, NYC

The Michael Chekhov technique is today seen as one of the most influential and inspiring methods of actor training in existence. In The Michael Chekhov Handbook, Lenard Petit draws on twenty years of teaching experience to unlock and illuminate this often complex technique for those studying, working with or encountering it for the first time.

Petit uses four sections to help readers approach the technique:

  • the aims of the technique – outlining the real aims of the actor
  • the principles – acting with energy, imagination and creative power
  • the tools – the actor’s use of the body and sensation
  • the application – bringing the technique into practice.

The Michael Chekhov Handbook’s explanations and exercises will provide readers with the essential tools they need to put the rewarding principles of this technique into use.

Lenard Petit is the Artistic Director of The Michael Chekhov Acting Studio in New York City. He teaches Chekhov technique in the MFA and BFA Acting programmes at Rutgers University. He was a contributor and co-creator of the DVD Master Classes in the Michael Chekhov Technique, published by Routledge.
