Michael Chekhov was Stanislavsky's star student and a master acting teacher. Exiled from Soviet Russia, he made his way to England and then to the United States, spending his last years as an actor and acting teacher in Hollywood. Along the way he introduced countless students to his acting technique known most famously for its "psychological gesture." Series editor Franc Chamberlain traces Chekhov's history and development, and lays a workshop-structured series of exercises for actors studying the Chekhov technique. Invigorating and insightful, the volume will help acting students to engage their imaginations and understand this fascinating man.
