The Chubbuck Technique is a 12-step system based on psychology and behavioral 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.

Ivana is the author of The Power of the Actor: The Chubbuck Technique which is used on college and university campus around the world and has been translated into Italian, Danish, Romanian, French, Spanish, Hebrew, Russian and Chinese. Her technique, as illuminated in her book, has been taught in Denmark, Chile, Romania, Italy, The Netherlands, UK and Canada. Ivana will soon be taking her work to Ukraine, China, Colombia, The Philippines and France.

There’s much to learn as an observer at a Chubbuck Workshop, as so much of the 2 day event includes many interactive exercises that everyone experiences.

For example, the whole group will participate in several exercises that enable the ability to easily and profoundly open up one’s emotional resources, in an effective way. These exercises create an easy and deep way to get to your true emotions. Everyone will also learn and experience how to create chemistry, learning the “Chemistry Exercise”.
This will be done individually, and as a group.

Each scene in the workshop also has been carefully picked for the participants to deal with another important aspect of what is necessary for a great performance. You’ll participate with figuring it out alongside the participants, interactively listening and watching, asking yourself questions such as “what would I use?” “what choice would I make here?” etc.

Throughout the Workshop, The 12 step Chubbuck Technique will become more clear on how to use it so as to establish a more successful result in the real world.

Having had workshop/masterclasses internationally – Ivana has received emails from every country that, both participants and auditors alike have had huge advances in their careers by virtue of their participating in the workshop, coming from the actors AND the observers!
Also script writers, directors, teachers and agents can benefit greatly from observing her workshop, not only because of it’s interactive nature, but because the very foundation of the technique is based in how to use pain as a fuel to overcome and WIN.

Use your personal pain as a fuel to overcome obstacles and go after a goal (objective) and WIN.
This thought process can be useful for success in work and your life.
