Three days of ‘Michael Chekhov acting technique’ with Anna-Katharina Andrees
15-17 May, 2020
Wilhelminenhofstr 91, 12459 Berlin
Tools for circus artists and performers in new circus.
Let’s continue our exploration with the Michael Chekhov Technique – this time focusing on specific tools for improvisation and ways to structure your composition, your creative process or just your personal rehearsal/ training. Structure can be freeing – just as improvisation can bring you to clarity.
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 the sources of your creativity.
For creation we need structure – and the power of our imagination as well as tools for improvisation to let the intuition free and catch the right moment, the action, atmosphere and the sensation we want to use for what we want to share.
You learn through psycho-physical trainings. We will improvise and get deeper into the process of creation with composition-analyses and some first steps of structure for processes. 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.
