2 days intensive training of Chekhov technique with Kathrin Heuer and Marcus Kohlbach

Imagination – the insight into the inner life of artistic figures

In this workshop we approach imagination and gain insight into the power of inner images. Once we accept the self-existence of the figures, we can get in touch with them on the basis of a specific artistic task.

For example, how does the Virgin of Orleans feel at the moment of revelation?

We observe the figures until our creative senses are aroused by them. Imagination and concentration will bring us to the high pleasure of pictorial possibilities and reveal to us a deeper palpable soul life of the characters.

Text sequences of different role characters will be provided.

Please bring comfortable clothing as we will be moving around a lot.

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