In the main - though not only - these will come from the work of Russian actor Michael Chekhov on the one hand and on Rudolf and Marie Steiner’s approach on the other. Inherent in both is an understanding that when we work as artists we engage with an intangible yet objective world that is larger than ourselves. Both of these above-mentioned artists invite performers to develop their imagination as an independent creative force in itself and as a resource for the artist. And that will mean that all performers need to learn to be truly present in everything they do and to make conscious choices when they create artistically. All PerformInternational tutors are familiar with these techniques both as teachers and as performers.
It is good to remember that both Rudolf Steiner and Michael Chekhov have an entirely open definition of art: that it brings joy! It is our aim that this quality, too, will be a central element in the PerformInternational trainings and courses.
