This workshop will look at some of the core principles of the technique by involving the psycho-physical training and the application of acting tools suggested by Chekhov. This workshop will focus mainly on Chekhov’s use of Psychological Gesture by means of portraying the character. We will be finding the character’s objective and bringing this to a gesture with qualities in order to get a deeper understanding of the character.
