Chekhov Technique: Inspiring Tools for Actors with Josh Heard
11 Weeks on Thursdays (September 11-November 20) from 6:00-9:00pm
Wouldn’t you love to expand your creative potential? Dive in to an incredible set of acting tools that will inspire your imagination and grant you access to the bottomless well of your creativity.
The Chekhov Technique gives actors a set of tools to break down scenes, create vivid characterizations, and reach great emotional heights quickly and creatively. Created with a desire to inspire rich artistic expression (and the idea that no actor should have to drudge up their past to live truthfully in the moment), the Chekhov Technique asks actors to open up to the creative possibilities and grants them permission to experience artistic beauty every single day.
This is a foundation class and is open to anyone interested in exploring their art in a new, fun, life-enriching way.
“As an actor, I'm always trying to change things up. I'm forever searching for options that are fresh but true-to-self. Learning the Michael Chekhov technique has made this easier than ever before. Although I've only scratched the surface of the technique, I am now surrounded by a world of possibilities. The Chekhov technique opens you up from the inside out…you are able to discover a world of true emotion without dredging up past, personal experiences. For me, this was a revelation!! I am deeply grateful to Josh Heard for teaching with so much passion and luminosity. In return, I feel I am a better actor and human being!” ~ Ama Zathura
