ACTING AND MOVEMENT COACH
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.
“You have to teach yourself to act but Michael Chekhov will give you the necessary tools”
