Act Truthfully, Transform Imaginatively
Acting with the Michael Chekhov Technique for the High School Actor

Chekhov Studio Chicago, a professional acting studio dedicated to training actors in the Michael Chekhov Acting Technique, welcomes teen actors this summer for a five day Intensive.

Summer Five-Day Intensive for Teen Actors
June 23-27, 2014
Monday - Friday 10:30-1:30 PM
Fee: $250

Discover the advantages of this approach to acting while diving into your acting craft this summer. Focus of the Intensive will be to
- experience the working process of the technique (which is rooted in movement and improvisation)
- learn tools for developing characters imaginatively
- apply some of these tools to developing a character of your choice. Each actor will be guided to see how to bring this new skill to short scenes and a monologue or a song.

This overview of Chekhov’s Technique will form a good foundation for all styles of acting for theatre and film.

Parents and interested friends are invited to observe during the last class.

The workshop venue for Chekhov Studio Chicago is The Christian Community Church in the Lincoln Square neighborhood, 2135 W Wilson, at the corner of Wilson and Hamilton, a few blocks from the Damen stop on the Brown line.
