Teachers can receive CPDU credit for all workshops through our partnership with the Illinois Theatre Association.

Weekend Intensive Workshops train actors, theatre teachers, and directors in the method of the Chekhov Technique. Each weekend workshop is centered on essential concepts covered in Michael Chekhov’s book, To The Actor. Students find that after a weekend workshop this book is very accessible and becomes an invaluable aid towards their further study.

In each Weekend Intensive includes work on the 'actor's body', characterization, and exploration of the gem of the technique; the 'Psychological Gesture'. This is the dynamic secret that ignites the inner life of your scenes. The workshop also includes an overview of other essentials of the technique that bring out your vital energies and imaginative characters for Theatre or Film. This workshop is a solid foundation for further study and a fresh experience for continuing students of the Chekhov method.

The Chekhov Technique provides actors a way to explore and embody a whole range of characters and character types. We will create original characters by exploring archetypes, character centers, and imaginary body. Then we will put them into play in improvisation. This focus is great for actors exploring the character types they want to hone for the profession. It’s also a wonderful way for teachers to help their students explore characters.

Fee: $125 for Non-members, $90 for Studio Members* For registration information and to sign up email us at info@movingdock.org
