Three days of ‘Michael Chekhov acting technique’ with Anna-Katharina Andrees
1-3 November, 2019
Wilhelminenhofstr 91, 12459 Berlin
Tools for circus artists and performers in new circus.
We will continue our exploration with the Michael Chekhov Technique – this time focusing on imagination, characterisation and the use of space. It is not necessary to have done the previous workshops. Basic tools will be repeated.
This is a workshop for circus-artists and performers who are interested to find out about the power of imagination and how to work with your stage character.
How do I create a character for stage? How do I incorporate my personality into the development of a stage character? Which tools help me to find my artistic character? Do I need a certain character on stage? These are some of the questions we want to deal with.
Imagination and the concrete use of space support us to get clarity in movement, transitions and characterisation. You learn through psycho- physical trainings and get to know tools in working with imagination, inner and outer gestures and feelings. The psychological gesture will be introduced. The tools are clear and practical. In this workshop I would like to deepen the approach of this special acting technique, which is a unique way of working with your inner space and creativity.
You are welcome to bring objects.
As teacher of the Michael Chekhov Acting Technique working with movement, dance, theatre and circus-art Anna-Katharina has developed her own method for an artistic approach. All her classes are taught by movement, improvisation and composition. As outside eye and coach Anna-Katharina supports circus-artists to get a deeper understanding of their creation, to find tools for implementation of ideas and to develop structure for research, rehearsal processes and performance.
