An actor’s quest - acting truthfully. Let’s welcome this challenge with the tools of the Michael Chekhov Acting Technique.
“Only a strong connection with our own highly trained imagination can help us perform truthfully.”
To the Actor by Michael Chekhov
The Feeling for Truth is one of the points of inspired acting but it doesn’t exist alone. It requires all our efforts to imagine and embody, so we need to bring together many of the tools of the technique to accomplish it, especially psychological gesture which awakens the truth within us.
Explore short interactive scenes and short monologues in this six week deep dive, developing your feeling of truth. Choose monologues that will serve you in upcoming auditions and/or that fuel your imagination and creative impulses!
This course is for actors, theatre directors, and theatre teachers to explore acting with the Chekhov Technique. Bring your curiosity and passion and get ready to imagine, improvise, and play!
