A performance-base exploration for actors of Shakespeare’s heightened text. Includes a final showcase performance. Shakespeare is an exploration of the powerful language, transcendent poetry, and deep humanity within the plays of William Shakespeare.
This class will focus on personal connection, the actor/audience relationship and reinvigorating the artists imagination, while working on selected speeches and some of the most incredible scenes ever written for the stage. Students will challenge themselves emotionally, intellectually and physically as they explore the demands of fully embodying heightened text with truth, clarity and their own unique and beautiful humanity.
