Summer Intensive Workshop at Chekhov Studio Chicago

Thursday – Saturday 10-4PM
with lunch break each day
and Thursday evening 5-9PM

This summer Intensive workshop is three concentrated days to explore facets of the Michael Chekhov Acting Technique. This workshop is focused on developing characters.

Study Chekhov’s effective and imaginative tools for creating dynamic characters in this three day intensive. Choose a role from a play, opera or musical and take a deep dive, discovering the core of the character. Develop a solo scene (monologue, aria, or musical solo) and perform it. On Thursday evening we will visit the Chicago Art Institute to explore the power of image for our characterization. These three days will be full of artistic discoveries to take into your performance life.

All the summer workshops will include preparing the Actor’s Body and working with the Psychological Gesture. Actors and theatre teachers new to Chekhov and those continuing their Chekhov journey can enjoy any of these workshops.

Workshops are taught by Dawn Arnold, Certified Michael Chekhov Teaching Artist and Artistic Director of Moving Dock Theatre Co.
