Anyone looking for a key to understanding more about Michael
Chekhov's technique 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. Petit uses four sections
to guide those studying, working with or encountering Chekhov's
approach for the first time: 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
programs at Rutgers University. He was a contributor and co-creator
of the DVD, Master Classes in The Michael Chekhov Technique,
published by Routledge.
