Shakespeare for Actors Who Hate Shakespeare – II: Scene Study
Class Members: 4 - 10
Four 4-Hour Sessions
Price: $226 incl HST ($169.5 incl HST for CAEA Members).
In Part II, the artist gets work with other artists to create enriched performances. We look at what it means to talk to each other as Shakespearean characters. How to inhabit a mask while also remaining present. How to understand what these blighters are saying. The artist will see that these scenes are, indeed, in English and not some alien language.
The players will also learn how to have fun, interact with their actor partners, and the audience at the same time.
The artists will also learn how to make these scenes, some of them familiar, exciting and new.
They will also learn strategies on how to maintain stamina. Above all, the artist will learn about the importance of active listening and how to have fun.
(Techniques used Meyerhold, Brecht).
