Body Voice Imagination is written by Dr. David Zinder, a teacher of the Michael Chekhov technique of acting training. This book is a comprehensive course of exercises devoted to the development of actors' creative expressivity, comprising both pre-Chekhov imagework training and seminal exercises of the Chekhov technique.
The book also details the way in which these techniques can be applied to performance through a discovery of the profound connections between the actor's body, imagination and voice. It develops both a comprehensive physical training system and an emphasis on practical character work.
This authoritative program of 'Pre-Chekhov' training is furnished with essential notes and advice from the author's store of professional experience.
