The Radiant Actor: Chekhov Technique meets the Feldenkrais MethodĀ® of somatic education

Although brilliant teachers take uniquely different paths, they sometimes lead to the emergence of related discoveries. Moshe Feldenkrais and the great acting teacher Michael Chekhov each developed an approach that engages the mind-body connection to illuminate a more consciously centered and potent being. Feldenkrais focused on "making the impossible possible, the possible easy and the easy elegant" while Chekov explored the use of "Ease, Beauty, Form and Wholeness." Both use movement to enhance awareness and expand our image, creativity and self-utilization.

Connie, a Guild Certified Feldenkrais PractitionerCM since 1999, is currently an Associate Professor of Acting/Movement at SUNY New Paltz. As a professional actor, she has worked regionally and off-Broadway, performed and taught as a guest artist. In 2016 she was named MICHA's Inaugural Scholar for her research and investigation of the synergy between the Feldenkrais Method and Chekhov Technique.
