Explore, Trust and Relish: A Shakespeare Intensive

Kiki & David Gindler Performing Arts Center

  • 3h
  • Class Minimum Size: 12
    Class Maximum Size: 14

    Tuesdays, 6:30-9:30pm

    Shakespeare’s text is a gift to the actor who knows how to find the offered clues to performance. We will explore the text’s structure, its rhetorical devices, its rhythm and sound; we will learn to trust the text as the source of what we need to know about character and action within the context of Elizabethan culture and beliefs; then exercises will help us relish and bring the text to vibrant stage life. Liz’s goal is to give you a way of approaching any new piece of Shakespeare text…or indeed any heightened text.

    Class Schedule: April 16, April 23, April 30, May 7, May 14, May 21
