Creating Character: Exploring Michael Chekhov's Creative Techniques

Monday 7 August 10am - Friday 11 August 5pm


with Sarah Kane, Performing Arts International

The Russian actor Michael Chekhov’s approach to acting offers simple yet inspired and inspiring ways of transforming into character by engaging the body and the creative imagination in equal measure.

Using archetypes, gestures, movement qualities, centres and the imagination, Chekhov gives any creative performing artist a full range of techniques or tools with which to create and then embody a character in a broad spectrum of styles: his techniques can strengthen any actor’s confidence in his or her own creative capacities.

The all-day workshop will run over five days and explore a wide range of tools for creating a character; it is open to anyone either new to the technique or wanting to explore it in greater depth.

The work is movement-based: please bring loose clothing and soft shoes as well as a character you would like to engage with and embody during the workshop.    

Sarah Kane has been both a practitioner and researcher into Michael Chekhov’s approach to acting and performance since the 1980s. Work as a workshop facilitator, teacher and director with both professional performers and actors in training has taken her all over the world over the last four decades.
