Michael Chekhov Technique Intensive Training Programme

The next programme begins November 2017

This intensive training programme, developed and directed by the internationally renowned tutor, Joerg Andrees, will enable actors and directors as well as performers to use the unique tools of the Michael Chekhov Technique to enhance their creativity in their professional work. Michael Chekhov's understanding of the creative nature of the human being, and the practical needs of the actor, led him to find new tools for the actor and director. Involving imagination, and psycho-physical techniques, Chekhov's method respects the actor as a free creative artist. Central to this is the development of artistic feelings on stage, and the psychological gesture, for creating the character.

This intensive training programme offers, in eight one week long modules, a well structured, practical approach to the tools of the Michael Chekhov Technique. International practioners and tutors of his method will provide a deep insight into the world-wide understanding of this highly acclaimed technique. Working on monologues, short scenes and improvisations, the actor will develop creative skills for finding the character, both for stage and film. Having completed modules 1-6, the participant may then progress toward a qualification as a Michael Chekhov Technique Facilitator by succesfully completing modules 7 and 8.
