“We are going to create a theatre that has a universal language. This is the language of the human heart …” — One of the most remarkable actors of our time, Michael Chekhov, predicted this about the theatre of the future. Today, we still so ardently and passionately seek for new means of theatrical expression.
At Chekhov Theatre School in Melikhovo, we are marking the 125th anniversary of the greatest actor of the 20th century – Michael Chekhov.
If you are an actor, stage director or acting coach looking for new inspiration and discoveries within your artistic work, you will want to embrace this exceptional opportunity to discover and learn one of the most inspiring techniques within the Art of Acting – the technique of Michael Chekhov. During 2016, the Chekhov Theatre School invites the most innovative masters within the Art of Acting to share their skills and inspiration in our leading Master Courses, which take place in the most remarkable pearl of Russian theatre history — in Anton Chekhov’s village of Melikhovo.
