“Gradually, you will experience more and more of that strong feeling which may be called an actor’s presence on the stage. While facing the audience you will never be self-conscious, never suffer from any kind of fear or lack of confidence in yourself as an artist.”
The thing about performance,
even if it’s only an illusion,
is that it is a celebration of the fact that
we do contain within ourselves

The Best-Kept Secret
Michael Chekhov Technique is one of the best kept secrets in Hollywood, and still quite unknown for the aspiring actors in Los Angeles. This is surprising, since such actors as Jack Nicholson and Anthony Hopkins both acknowledged the power of using the technique in their own work. To learn more about Michael Chekhov, click here
“Searching for a good acting class in Hollywood is like looking for good food in a city you’ve never been to. It all looks good… but afterwards, when you wake up at 4am with a horrible stomach issue, you’re likely to regret that you went to the wrong place. Chekhov Studio International is like a really great secret restaurant that only the locals know about. Marjo-Riikka is a fantastic human being (first and foremost) and an amazingly gifted acting coach. I studied with her for a long time and the skills I learned are the most valuable and fun-to-use tools in my acting bag. Sense memory and all the other American method stuff is great, but in my opinion you would do yourself a great disservice as an actor if you don’t also work to unleash the full power of your imagination. The best way I know how to do that is with the Michael Chekhov technique. And the best way to learn that technique is to study at Chekhov Studio International.”
