with IVANA CHUBBUCK (Los Angeles, USA)

in Berlin, 8th – 11th January 2015

Susan Batson During her 30-plus year career, Ivana Chubbuck has worked with a long list of A-list actors: Brad Pitt, Jared Leto, Charlize Theron, Halle Berry, James Franco, Jim Carrey, Jake Gyllenhaal – just to name a few. The Chubbuck Technique is being used worldwide to award winning results – From Oscars, Emmys, Tonys, and many international awards. Her technique has created success for actors, writers and directors.

The Chubbuck Technique is a 12-step system based on psychology and behavioural science. It guides an actor to the heart of a character by discovering the character’s primal needs – love, validation and power – and by doing anything and everything to win their objective.

It is a requirement to get the book, Power of the Actor (order here). You must rehearse at least 6 – 8 hours on the scene using the 12 steps outlined in the book. And come fully rehearsed, with props, and performance ready. Ivana assigns the scenes and the scene partner prior to this Master Class.
It is also possible to be part as an observer. Each observer will feel very much a part of the action and there is also time for questions and answers. This is an excellent opportunity for actors of all levels of experience, and also for writers, directors and teachers.

“In order to recreate real human behaviour and truly be in the scene (and avoid “acting” it out), I teach you to go to the source of what motivates human behaviour. We will go directly to the script, doing script analysis from the viewpoint of the science of behaviour – how and why people really behave. Thus, we look at the psyche of the character in the script and see how that particular character negotiates life. Then, using the Chubbuck Technique, I will teach you to replicate the character from your own personal needs and life experiences. This creates a character that is vivid, authentic and living and breathing in the moment. The Chubbuck Technique is a way to realize and embody a character so that the character becomes you, and you become the character.”
