Course Overview

This eight-week theatre acting series is designed for actors who are serious about gaining detailed insight and practice into Kevin’s Creative Habit Technique. Kevin will delve into script analysis, character development techniques and detailed grammatical work, changing your professional mindset and lifting your focus, forcing you to be the best artist you can be. The course will begin with a focus on Chekhov in order to benefit from the Chekhov/Stanislavsky relationship, which is the keystone of all approaches to acting for the Western Canon. The focus will then shift to focus on a classic contemporary play.
