CHEKHOV ACTING TRAINING By Oorvazi Irani
Exclusively designed and conducted for Kishore Namit Kapoor Acting Institute for the first time in India
“I use to find it difficult to cry for a scene but now its so easy”
“I don’t have to fight with my real girlfriend anymore in my imagination”
“It was sometimes difficult to have romantic feelings for boys in a class exercise but not anymore”
The joy of sharing a new technique with aspiring actors was a lovely experience and receiving their feedback was satisfying.
As an artist I am fascinated by the artform of acting where its ‘you’ who are the artwork itself. You are the creator, the medium and the effect. Ofcourse at times the process is very challenging but its important to remind ourselves that we have two paths to choose from, one that leads to self destruction and the other that leads to evolution and I ofcourse choose to emphasize the latter.
Chekhov acting training created by Michael Chekhov is one of the most modern acting training techniques internationally and has been adopted by leading Hollywood actors like Anthony Hopkins, Jack Nicholson, Helen Hunt etc. among others
This training technique allows you to experience your Infinite Self.
Its a transformation beyond your limited self using techniques like Psychological Gesture, Sensations, Imaginary Body, Imaginary Centres … and creating a wide range of characters and emotions with the basic tools of your body and imagination.
