Workshop: The Chekhov Act

This workshop will focus on some of the key principles in the technique of renowned actor and director, Mikhail Chekhov (1891-1955). Through exploring his radical psycho-physical tools of receiving, radiating, expansion and visualisation, we will investigate what it really means to come into the present tense and how the art of spontaneity can be learnt and inspiration prepared. We will examine how transformation and characterisation begin from the simplest of premises: listening and awakening the imagination.
