Speaking Shakespeare Like a Human
Finding his words in your voice
Sundays, October 15 - November 19, 2017
The most important element in performing Shakespeare isn’t scansion, or diction. It isn’t a powerful voice or an imposing physical presence. It’s yourself, and the ways in which you can bring the unique, compelling person that you are into your performance. Your voice, body, scansion, and diction are important tools, but if they aren’t helping you to reveal your Self onstage then they aren’t serving you effectively.
This six-week course will focus on:
- Emphasizing honest, direct, person-to-person communication in scenes and monologues
- Allowing Shakespeare's meter, rhythm and poetic forms to serve you rather than restrict you
- Developing a system to find spontaneity while feeling confident in your choices
Classes will be held Sundays from 11am-2pm
