This two hour workshop will be an introduction to the acting technique
developed and taught by Michael Chekhov, arguably the most influential
acting teacher who has ever lived. Participants will explore Chekhov’s
concepts of: feeling of ease, qualities of movement, centers, and imaginary
body through individual/ensemble work and discussion. Participants of all
experience levels are welcome. No previous experience in acting or acting
technique is necessary.
