Heartfire Studio is dedicated to research, training and performance in the Langman technique. A technique integrating Michael Chekhov’s methodology with Rudolf Steiner’s art of speech. The technique offers a contemporary, spiritually-enlivened path of development for the actor, in which the combined insights of Steiner and Chekhov lead to new possibilities for the performing arts.
