We are excited to announce that this fall:
TED PUGH, FERN SLOAN, LENARD PETIT,
JOANNA MERLIN and RAGNAR FREIDANK
are coming together at the Michael Chekhov School to offer a progressive 3-WEEK journey through the Michael Chekhov Technique.
All 5 teachers are featured in the acclaimed DVD series "Master Classes in the Michael Chekhov Technique", created 10 years ago by MICHA, the Michael Chekhov Association, published by Routledge and now available for streaming.
Building on the DVD series, the teachers reunite this fall to expand on each area of the technique, providing actors with a comprehensive practical knowledge of this work. Offered in collaboration with the Michael Chekhov Acting Studio in NYC and MICHA, the Michael Chekhov Association.
The program is open to:
* recent graduates in a theater program who are transitioning into the acting profession
* working actors who want to gain practical knowledge of Michael Chekhov's Technique
* student actors who already possess fundamental training in acting and wish to dedicate themselves to 3 intensive weeks of Michael Chekhov Training
September 12-30, 2016 - Tuition: $2100
The fall workshop can be taken independently or as part of an 8-week Immersion Program
Housing is available. Space is limited.
