“All true artists bear within themselves a deeply rooted and often unconscious desire for transformation.” (Michael Chekhov)

When children play games, we can observe this desire to transform and to change – they lose themselves in play and fully commit themselves to another world. The “Other” (i.e. the character in a play) is always bigger than the personal experience of the performer. Michael Chekhov therefore asks us to look at the differences between the character and ourselves rather than at the similarities. If we dive into the inner and outer experience of this other person, we will discover a whole new world. And we will find ourselves in a new light.

In this workshop we will explore the connection between inner images, organic breathing, and the creation of truthful characters.

The course will consist of the following tools from Michael Chekhov technique:
Imaginary Body – Imaginary Centers – Centers of Thinking, Feeling, Willing – Objectives – Relationships – Transformation
