Act Truthfully, Transform Imaginatively
Begin your study of the Michael Chekhov Acting Technique with the Essentials of the Chekhov Technique as found in Chekhov’s book, To The Actor.
- Study the dynamic principles for the actor
- Develop your instrument – body and voice
- Learn Chekhov’s creative, improvisational process
- Learn the tools of the technique including the Psychological Gesture
Actors will work as an ensemble, with partners, and with solo concentration. Throughout the sessions, short scenes will be created out of improvisations. Actors will also work with a play, looking at text analysis in an engaged way and developing characters. Selections of these creative explorations will be performed in the showcase at the end of the course.
All our continuing classes and special workshops are built on this foundational course. Actors who have studied Chekhov previously may take this course to refresh their understanding of these valuable lessons.
