This project report examines the process of approaching the character of Mette in David Eldridge's, Festen as presented by the California Repertory in October 2009. My approach included the use of the imagination through the application of Psychological Gestures as developed in Michael Chekhov's book, To The Actor.
Based on the character's desires, strong, physical gestures were imagined and executed to engage both the imagination and body. The Psychological Gestures explored served to strengthen desires and stimulate feelings, which aided in the success of my characterization.
