MICHA June 2021 Virtual Online International Michael Chekhov Workshop and Festival

Friday, June 18 - Thursday, June 24


MICHA's 22nd annual International Michael Chekhov Workshop and Festival

June 18-24, 2021 online

Join us as we train, connect, support one another, and continue the flow of ideas from one part of the world to the next. Let's turn toward one another, give and receive, and make some little pieces of art this June!

We have class and event offerings to suit all time zones and schedules. You can sign up for a single session, or spend the whole day training. The first three days offer classes á la carte and the final 4 days offer classes that require a foundation in the technique and a 4-day commitment: choose from Devising, Directing, Teacher Training: the 5 Guiding Principles, and Chekhov in Pairs, a series of classes that you take online but with a partner from your own community.

Throughout the days we will offer festival performances, round table discussions and social hours.
