Event description

Description

Sinéad Rushe, theatre director and Senior Lecturer in Acting and Movement on BA Acting CDT, invites you to celebrate the launch of her book, Michael Chekhov’s Acting Technique: A Practitioner’s Guide, published by Bloomsbury Methuen.

The book provides a complete overview of the whole method, and includes illuminating explanations of its principles, as well as a wide range of practical exercises that illustrate, step by step, how they can be applied to dramatic texts. Drawing on the full range of Chekhov's writing in English and French, it also examines unpublished material from the Dartington Hall archives and features interviews with actors who have worked with the technique, including Simon Callow and Joanna Merlin.

The evening will include short a presentation from Sinéad Rushe as well as from actors Gretchen Egolf and Robert Bowman, and will be followed by a drinks reception.
