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?

Friday we meet at Chekhov Studio Chicago at 7PM learning ways to ‘take’ images into our acting.

Christian Community Church
2135 W Wilson Chicago, IL 60625

Saturday we will meet and enter the Art Institute at 10:30AM
Art Institute Chicago
111 South Michigan Ave Chicago, IL 60603

and spend the day examining how artists have expressed character, dramatic action through gesture, atmosphere, and more and then explore how we can ‘take an image’ to work with it in acting.

We will take a lunch break at the Museum Cafe and then continue until 4PM. You might choose to continue to enjoy the museum until it closes at 5PM.

Not yet a Chekhov Technique Actor? Not an actor but interested to look through the actor’s lens at images of art? Delighted to have you join us for this special Weekend Intensive.

This workshop is led by Dawn Arnold, Artistic Director of Moving Dock Theatre and Chekhov Technique Teaching Artist at Chekhov Studio Chicago.
