A 2 day Michael Chekhov workshop in Liverpool on the 26th and 27th of August.
“You have to teach yourself to act but Michael Chekhov will give you the necessary tools”
BEN PHILLIPS: ACTING AND MOVEMENT COACH
I initially trained at Ecole Phillipe Gaulier in London as well as the Hope Street Physical Theatre Programme in Liverpool. I have 16 years industry experience in performing, directing, and devising work.
I recently completed a two and a half year training at the Michael Chekhov International Academy in Berlin and am now one of the few qualified Chekhov teachers in the north of England. Chekhov’s psycho-physical training allows the actor to strengthen their creative imaginations.
The work is extremely effective and liberating in helping the actor to find a new depth to their work by developing a stronger relationship between the physical body and the imagination. It also provides accessible exercises which can be a crucial aid when preparation time is short. The Chekhov technique is also incredibly beneficial to non-actors looking to further develop their creativity.
