Abstract (Summary)

This project report examines the process of forming an emotional link between audience and actor while attempting to conquer fear and self-consciousness embodied in the role of Heino Andersen in The Poetry of Pizza, by Deborah Brevoort. This romantic comedy was produced by the California Repertory Company at the Queen Mary Royal Theatre, on February 18–March 13, 2010.

I shall demonstrate my understanding and use of the techniques of Michael Chekhov, specifically his concepts called "radiation" and "atmospheres," while preparing for the role. Utilizing the conservatory training and the work of Michael Chekhov, I intended to forge a bond with the audience while releasing myself from self-consciousness.
