Act Truthfully, Transform Imaginatively
Begin your study of the Michael Chekhov Acting Technique with the Essentials of the Chekhov Technique as found in Chekhov’s book, To The Actor.

- Study the dynamic principles for the actor
- Develop your instrument – body and voice
- Learn Chekhov’s creative, improvisational process
- Learn the tools of the technique including the Psychological Gesture

The essentials of the Chekhov Technique, such as the four brothers (sense of ease, sense of form, sense of beauty, sense of the whole); giving and receiving, expansion and contraction, qualities of movement, centers, sensations, the three sisters (falling, floating, balancing); atmosphere; archetype, and psychological gesture, prepare the actor in mind and body to do their best work and enlarge their scope of the art of the actor.

Actors will work as an ensemble, with partners, and with solo concentration. Throughout the sessions, short scenes will be created out of improvisations. Actors will also work with a play, looking at text analysis in an engaged way and developing characters.

All our continuing classes and special workshops are built on this foundational course.​ Actors who have studied Chekhov previously may take this course to refresh their understanding of these valuable lessons.
