This project report investigates the connection between the physical work of Tadashi Suzuki and the Psychological Gesture as taught by Michael Chekhov in the development of the roles of Joe, the Reporter and Charlie in Melissa James Gibson's Current Nobody. The play was produced by California Repertory Company at the Queen Mary's Royal theatre, November 19th to December 12th, 2009.
My goal is to demonstrate how Suzuki technique can be applied as a preparation for creating a Psychological Gesture. I intend to show how the actor can apply two seemingly disparate techniques towards a common goal in the creation of a role.
