Michael Chekhov Acting Technique - Tools for the Actor

Intensive Focus: Building a Character: Thinking, Feeling, and Willing

March 1 & 2
Friday 7-10 PM

" Ask three questions...What is the difference between my way of thinking and the character's way of thinking? Then try to find the difference between the feelings and emotions of your character and yourself. Then investigate the nature of your will and the will of your character." Michael Chekhov

Want to get acquainted with the Chekhov Technique? Weekend Workshops are a good way to begin your study of the Chekhov Technique - a two day immersion in an atmosphere focused on artistic creativity and development. Our weekend workshops train actors, theatre teachers and directors in the method of the Chekhov Technique. Participants work as actors in a fun, active, yet very focused way. Each weekend workshop is centered on several concepts covered in Michael Chekhov’s book, To The Actor. Most students find that after a workshop this book is very accessible and becomes an invaluable aid towards their further study.

In each Weekend Intensive we will prepare your 'actor's body' and work with the gem of the technique; the 'Psychological Gesture'. This is the dynamic secret that ignites the inner life of your scenes. Find out how to use this technique for Theatre or Film. This workshop also includes an overview of other essentials of the technique that bring out your vital energies and imaginative characters. We will look at how these tools that work so well for developing characters can give you a more confident presence for auditions and interviews. If you decide to continue training in the Chekhov Technique, this workshop will be a solid foundation for further study.
