About this workshop

Finding the Character using the Michael Chekhov Technique

This 2-day workshop is all about using different elements of the Michael Chekhov Acting Technique to find characters.These two days can be booked together or separately. The 12th September will be delivered in English by Sarah Purcell and the 13th September will be delivered in German by Kathrin Heuer with some translation assistance if required.

Sarah and Kathrin are both qualified Michael Chekhov teachers, you can find out more about them on our Tutors page.

12th September with Sarah Purcell:

We will explore Chekhov’s ‘Four Kinds of Movements’ (moulding, floating, flying and radiating) and how to apply these movements in the creation of characters from the given texts. This course will be filled with movement, imagination and concentration. All participants will then have the opportunity to present these short monologues.

13th September mit Kathrin Heuer: 

Anhand unterschiedlicher Tools der Michael Chekhov Technik werden wir uns eingehend mit dem Thema Figurenarbeit auseinandersetzen. Dazu arbeiten wir mit Monologsequenzen die wir untersuchen und erspielen um sie dann in Szene zu setzen. Die Inspiration kann dabei in uns Impulse wecken, welche dann in selbstbestimmte kreative Prozesse und Bewegungsabläufe gipfeln. Die Monologe werden vor Ort ausgegeben.

English Translation: Character work: Using different tools from the Michael Chekhov technique, we will deal with the topic of character work in detail. To do this, we will work with given monologues and investigate them in order to then stage them. We will see how inspiration can awaken impulses in us, which then culminate in self-determined creative processes and movements.
