2 days intensive training of Chekhov technique with Kathrin Heuer and Sarah Purcell

Workshop topics – psychological gesture

By getting to know psycho-physical exercises, we become familiar with Michael Chekhov’s technique and his ideas of how to train the body of the actor. On this basis, we deepen our work and dedicate ourselves to the different centers of the body, which give us a rich scope for inner and outer experience to broaden our space for creative play.

Using various tools of the Michael-Chekhov method, we will take an in-depth look at the topic of psychological gestures.

In order to be able to credibly embody the stage personality, which is seen in the imagination, Chekhov has developed so-called “psychological gestures”, which should help the actor to produce a posture and movement that corresponds to the stage character. These developed gestures run like a red thread through all situations which the stage character enters in a play.

“All true artists, bear within themselves a deeply rooted and often unconscious desire for transformation.” – Michael Chekhov
