Performing Arts International offers classes, workshops, trainings and performances working with body, soul and spirit, inspired by the work developed by Michael Chekhov and Rudolf Steiner. 

Initiated by Sarah Kane, actor, creative speech artist, director and teacher of acting and creative speech, Performing Arts International is an arts organisation which aims to create a living and enlivening environment that both supports and challenges participants, helping them to uncover and explore their own creative resources. 
The work conducted by PAI is experiential first and foremost; it is a place where participants can develop both their creative independence and strengthen their artistic skills and human resilience. 

Learning opportunities in the UK include: 

A part-time modular course leading to recognised qualifications from both the Goetheanum in Switzerland and Trinity Guildhall in the UK. 
One-to-one coaching and drop-in classes, with Sarah Kane. 
Specific workshops on such subjects as Creative Speech or Michael Chekhov’s Psychological Gesture, with Sarah Kane and other PAI contributors. 
Individual workshops and classes on bespoke themes, with Sarah Kane and other PAI contributors. 

In Europe and the USA: 

Sarah Kane and PAI contributors also regularly teach on workshops run by other organisations elsewhere, such as the Michael Chekhov Studio London, MICHA USA, Michael Chekhov Europe or the Michael Chekhov Studio Paris.
