Michael Chekhov (1891 – 1955)

Michael Chekhov (1891 – 1955), nephew of the playwright Anton Chekhov, is recognized as one of the greatest actors of the 20th century. Chekhov became internationally known for his works on characterization and the creative process.

At the Moscow Art Theatre, the collaboration between Stanislavsky, Vakhtangov, Meyerhold and Chekhov led to a theater that was bold, expressive and imaginative. In their work they searched for objective principles that would lead to inspired acting. This investigation led Michael Chekhov to develop his psychophysical acting technique, incorporating the imagination and body as well as the intellect. In 1928, Chekhov left Russia, never to return. He spent 11 years in Europe acting and teaching. He worked with Max Reinhardt in Berlin and Vienna, formed his own theater group in Paris, directed plays in Riga and the Baltic countries. In 1936, Chekhov to establish his own Theater Studio at Dartington Hall in England.

In 1939, he moved to the USA. He gave acting classes in New York and Hollywood.
