Michael Chekhov Classes in July

July 01, 2019

FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich.– Jeff Thomakos, the world’s only tri-certified instructor of The Michael Chekhov Technique of Acting is offering two workshops for adults this July.

On Wednesday, July 10th from 7pm-10pm, Mr. Thomakos will be offering Instant Characters. Students will be learning fun and easy ways to create characters instantly. How does one give life and dimension to a character on film with less than a minute of screen time?

How do you create a character without the benefit of a rehearsal process? How do you give a director a variety of characterizations to choose from within a given role? This process will help empower the actor to do this and more.

On Wednesday, July 31st from 7pm-10pm, Mr. Thomakos will offer a second workshop called The Six: Objectives. Actors often struggle with the limitless number of objectives they can choose to play. This workshop will refine the choices to six simple objectives to choose from in order for the actor to efficiently pick the most truthful and dynamic choice in the moment. This shortcut will revolutionize auditions and help make participants any director’s favorite in rehearsals.
