Best known for his Psychological Gesture work, Michael Chekhov (Anton Chekhov's nephew) took what he learned as Stanislavski's top student, and lifted it from the natural to the extraordinary. Central to his psycho-physical approach is working with impulse, imagination, inner and outer gesture, and atmosphere. His exercises will open your characters to new possibilities and give you practical tools to apply to any theatre genre. Suggested Reading: Michael Chekhov's "To The Actor".
