Good and Evil in Characters

September 3, 2018 - September 8, 2018
  • This event has passed.

A Workshop with JOERG ANDREES and Colleagues

“In every well-written play the battle rages between the primary powers of Good and Evil, and it is this battle which constitutes the life impulse of the play, its driving force, and is basic to all plot structures…In any true piece of art…the beginning and the end are, or should be, polar in principle. All the main qualities of the first section should transform themselves into their opposites in the last section.”

Michael Chekhov

This workshop will examine both characters and themes of good and evil from works by Marina Carr, Neil LaBute and Harold Pinter. By using various elements of the Michael Chekhov Technique, such as psychological gesture, imaginary body, imaginary centre and atmosphere, participants will find a way to act characters from contemporary plays with joy and freedom from their own emotional memory.
