Michael Chekhov Module 4
‘ME’ IS THE OTHER
Transformation into the Character
“All true artists bear within themselves a deeply rooted and often unconscious desire for transformation.” (Michael Chekhov)
When children play games we can observe this desire to transform and to change - they lose themselves in play and fully commit themselves to another world. The “Other” (i.e. the character in a play) is always larger than the personal experience of the performer.
