The Chubbuck Technique

The Chubbuck Technique is a set of tools that allows actors to create a character from their own personal life experiences. Building on Stanislavki’s teaching traditions, the Chubbuck Technique uses the advances in science and psychology to create effective performances with accessible tools.

We recreate real human behavior by going to the source of the motivation for human behavior. We look at the psyche of the character in the script and investigate how that particular character negotiates life. At the Chubbuck Youth, we go directly to the script and do script analysis using the science of behavior – how and why people really behave.
