Edge Two Sharing: BODY TALKS – The Techniques of Michael Chekhov

Get your tickets for our latest Edge Two sharing, BODY TALKS – The Techniques of Michael Chekhov.

Michael Chekhov was a Russian-American actor, director, author, teacher and theatre practitioner. His acting technique revolutionised the way actors were trained: working physically and emotionally to free actors and to inspire audiences. In the Spring module of our intermediate acting group, Edge Two have been exploring Chekhov’s idea of the ‘psychological gesture’ – a physical movement or gesture which captures the total essence of a character.

Come along and see the weird and wonderful work the Edge Two group have been doing inspired by the man who put creativity and imagination into acting training, freed his actors and produced some very whacky and surreal ideas.  This performance promises to be fun, bonkers and entertaining.

This piece has been devised and developed collaboratively with members of Edge Two and facilitators Christopher Holt and Júlia Couto.
