Wise Actor
Thursday and Friday 7-10 PM, Saturday 10-4 PM

“Our exercises, which are very simple, are giving to the body wisdom.” Michael Chekhov

The first of our fall workshops focuses on discovering how to act with the unique instrument that is our body. More than ‘getting out of your head,’ acting with your wise actor body expands your intuitive, impulsive, sensing ability. Working with tools of the Chekhov Technique, we will find our acting choices in a way that brings the body and mind together as a harmonious whole. Actors will work with characters from material that interests them as well as create improvised scenes.

Images play a large part in the art of the actor. Whether we are trying to see an imagined place or incorporate an idea of the nature of a character, we can ‘take’ images into our acting. The Chekhov Technique gives us means for taking images, but what images? Why not be influenced by other artists?

Christian Community Church
