POETRY

The art of receiving from words

Poetry is not just a beautiful form of expression, it is also a very valuable tool for the actor, helping the development of the ability to receive from the text in an imaginative way as opposed to intellectually analysing its words. We will explore this way of understanding the text, like a musical score, a choreography, a path to follow, to walk upon, inhabiting and be-living (in) the text instead of pushing it, interpreting it, willing it.

 

This is part one of a two part workshop, which includes a showcase in a central London venue in September 2022, providing the participants with the opportunity of experiencing the practical application of these techniques during the rehearsal process and  performing in front of a real audience.

Perception: (noun) the ability to see, hear or become aware of something through the senses.

 

In this workshop we will explore the principles of Michael Chekhov and strengthen the perceptive and focus capacities of the actors, enhancing their ability to experience the world of imagination, understanding that the creative process has more to do with allowing than with making, doing or pushing.

" The inner life of the imagination, and not the personal and tiny experiential resources of the actor, should be elaborated on the stage and shown to the audience. This life is rich and revealing for the audience as well as for the actor himself. "

INIGO GALIANO

I've been extremely lucky to have had the opportunity of travelling around the world giving workshops with Graham.

Knowing this approach gave me something tangible to work with as an actor, a solid foundation for my artistic journey.

Graham Dixon showed the work of Michael Chekhov for what it is: an unique tool for finding the vocal and physical expression of the fantasy of the actor, for making the inner life manifest. Anyone who feels earthbound in voice or body should attend  a workshop led by Graham.
