Praxis Acting Studio: an artistic home for actors in the heart of screenland


The Fundamentals

Michael Chekhov, Stanislavski’s “most brilliant student”, developed his own psychophysical approach to acting.  Chekhov’s work unifies the psychology of the character with the body via movement, gesture and imagination to create an active inner life.
