Michael Chekhov: Directing an Actors' Theatre

Cornford, Tom (2019) Michael Chekhov: Directing an Actors' Theatre. In: Russian Theatre in Practice: The Director's Guide. Performance Books . Bloomsbury, London, pp. 95-107. ISBN 9781474284431

Abstract

This chapter argues that Michael Chekhov's work is incompletely understood unless we consider him as both an actor and a director and as a theorist not only of acting but of theatre more widely. It offers an overview of his directorial work and analyses his directorial process, from which it derives some exercises for use in the rehearsal room.
