THE PICTURE SPEAKS - 5/75 minute sessions
(75 waged/50 concessions) 6th July - 3rd August
The Feeling of Form is one of the most valuable principles that Chekhov gives us and this project of 5/75 minute sessions will leave each participant with, as Chekhov calls it, ‘a little piece of art’ from a little piece of art. Your seed for this project is a portrait picture from any period of the participant’s choice (or you can be given one if you prefer). Working with the feeling of form of both the picture and position of the character, as well as the screen of your computer, the atmosphere of the painting or any other Chekhov tool you wish to use, you create a piece of writing or movement based upon the work you have chosen. If the group wishes, the pieces can then be shared online for a limited period to create a dramatic online gallery. Participants preferred with some Chekhov experience.
