Chubbuck Technique

A 2-week Bilingual Acting Workshop

Chubbuck Technique

The Chubbuck Technique is used by Charlize Theron, Jake Gyllentaal, Hally Berry, Jessica Biel, Jared Leto, Beyonce and many other Hollywood celebrities.

Founded by Ivana Chubbuck who has been thanked in public at the Oscars for her contribution, this technique will teach you how to use your traumas, emotional pains, obsessions, needs, desires and dreams to fuel and drive your character in the pursuit of their ultimate objective. You will learn that the obstacles of your character’s life aren’t meant to be accepted but to be overcome in heroic proportions. In other words, this technique teaches actors how to win.

l believe the Chubbuck technique could be boiled down to, take the pain in your life andfind the most effective way to accomplish a goal with it. The most interesting aspect is that it helps you to understand humanity. What drives someone to do what they do. good or bad. That even someone who seems outwardly evil to the outside world, has a righteous reason to be who they are, and do what they do.

Halle Berry - Méthode Chubbuck

The Chubbuck technique's innovative methods of teaching both complement and rival those of the great teachers of the past. Her philosophy transcends what we once knew about the art, and forces actors through their own catharsis to discover authentic ways of bringing the complexity of life to the screen and stage.

Charlize Theron - Méthode Chubbuck

I finally went to a class in Los Angeles with this wonderful teacher, Ivana Chubbuck. Ivana taught me how to take my emotions and take everything that has happened in my life, and use it to make me an effective actor. The stakes have to be high — so it was really an interesting place for me to stand on my feet and fall on my face many times

Jessica Biel - Technique Chubbuck

The guesswork is gone. Finally. a book The Power of the Actor' that provides the nuts and bolts to acting, that shows me how to always be present, how to always have something going on behind my eyes and ultimately, that provides a concrete path for me to really discover and live a role.

In this class I found the power to not back down. Corey helped me realize why my choices are not as specific as they can be. I can see now how I can get out of my head and into the action of the story, fighting for what I personally want. It's a much richer experience for myself and the audience!
