Session I Intensive: May 28 - June 6.This course includes a one hour break in the middle of the class session.

Description

Working with Fiasco Theater, this intensive class has two principal goals: to give students training in a variety of acting and performance techniques for the classic stage, and to mobilize those skills towards the interpretation and workshopping of a Shakespeare play. Each class session will be divided into workshops, which will focus on such topics as: voice and speech, stage combat, clown, working with verse, physical metaphor, writing and adapting songs for Shakespearean performance, and ensemble games. The second half of the class sessions will involve collective rehearsal of the Shakespeare play. This intensive will be appropriate for all students interested in the performance of Shakespeare, and attention will be paid to providing opportunities for those most interested in directing or designing as well as acting. All students will participate in all activities, but the focus of each student can include a diversity of roles.
