chubbuck Exchange

online  international workshop
April 2022
Chubbuck Technique by certified teachers: Rania Gaaloul and Andreas Lyon

The Chubbuck Technique enables the actor to make strong choices by discovering your own potential, so that you can learn how to win every scene. The empowering technique, developed by Ivana Chubbuck, is one of the leading systems for the modern actor, and her book The Power of The Actor has been translated into more than ten different languages.

In the CHUBBUCK EXCHANGE you will put this theory into practice with two certified coaches, who are dedicated to give you the best this technique has to offer. Not only will you be discovering new territory with great dramatic/comedic scenes, but you will also be part of an international exchange by having a scene partner from another country



The work we do is demanding, like the industry we are working in. Each actor is expected to commit fully to all classes, and should spend 6-8 hours a week on preparation and rehearsal with their scene partners.  It is a minimum requirement for participation that you have read and comprehended the first four chapters of the book. Please understand that this is absolutely fundamental for the success of the workshop to do the work, or else you will not grow or develop these skills. In exchange you will reap the benefits of a wonderful technique, as many before you, and as a participant you will work each time and receive individual feedback, to ensure your progression and development.

"Essentially, The Chubbuck Technique takes the very same pain, insecurities, issues and fears that usually cause self-destructive behaviors and instead uses the very same issues as a powerful fuel to overcome, resolve, learn, evolve and create catharsis for the characters in the script. Thereby the Chubbuck Technique philosophy creates a dynamic journey for the actor, writer, director and ultimately the audience. The underbelly of the Chubbuck Technique is to find a way to “win” in spite of and because of the pain.  "

From "The Power of The Actor, by Ivana Chubbuck
