Each summer, a select constellation of MICHA faculty gather to create a unique series of classes open to the introductory, continuing and advanced practitioner of Michael Chekhov's technique. The artists who comprise our rotating faculty live, teach, and work in a variety of countries and cities. Some identify primarily as actors while others work as directors, dancers, choreographers, film makers, voice and speech coaches, movement specialists, social practice artists, etc. Each member of MICHA's faculty embraces teaching as a central tenant of their artistic work and we are honored that they elect to teach with us and, in doing so, provide the foundation for our Association.
