This annual intercultural encounter brings performance and training approaches from different backgrounds and continents into a practical exchange. You will intensively study the Michael Chekhov Acting Technique, and at the same time you will be in dialogue with other artistic traditions and performance techniques from around the globe. Our guiding topic is: THE AUDIENCE. It will open new perspectives on Acting, Movement, Characterization, Relationships, Style, Body & Space. 

There will be different workshop tracks in the morning and afternoon, followed by showcases, events and open classes in the evening. The daily training sessions can be combined so you will get a sense of each of the offered forms. The Summer Academy 2023 includes Michael Chekhov Europe’s Training module 5: ”Communion with the Audience”.
