Description

Application of the Michael Chekhov Technique to Shakespeare’s Sonnets, Soliloquies and Monologues illustrates how to apply the Michael Chekhov Technique, through exercises and rehearsal techniques, to a wide range of Shakespeare’s works.

The book begins with a comprehensive chapter on the definitions of the various aspects of the technique, followed by five chapters covering Shakespeare’s sonnets, comedies, tragedies, histories, and romances. This volume offers a very specific path, via Michael Chekhov, on how to put theory into practice and bring one’s own artistic life into the work of Shakespeare.

Offering a wide range of pieces that can be used as audition material, Application of the Michael Chekhov Technique to Shakespeare’s Sonnets, Soliloquies and Monologues is an excellent resource for acting teachers, directors, and actors specializing in the work of William Shakespeare.

The book also includes access to a video on Psychological Gesture to facilitate the application of this acting tool to Shakespeare’s scenes.
