Summer Shakespeare Intensive - SUMMER 2019
“BUILD A PERFORMANCE”: 6 WEEK SUMMER ACTING WORKSHOP
I'm very excited to present my new summer workshop series, “Build a Performance”. The series is designed to give actors command over the nuances between Comedy and Drama in classical material by utilizing clues in the text. The professional actor will discover that these same methods can be applied to modern material as well, whether it be for the stage, TV or film.
Wednesdays and Thursdays
Monologue workshop begins Wed. June 19 - July 24
Dram-Com Scene Study begins Thurs. June 20 - August 1
Limited to 12 students
WEDNESDAYS. Monologue Workshop: Speaking the Text.
Learn to uncover the character's physical life and maximize your performance of classical monologues out-loud and on-your-feet! Utilizing First Folio technique, you'll access the "blueprint" Shakespeare coded within his classical texts, and "suit the action to the word" to make the best gutsy, visceral and organic acting choices. We'll then translate your bold stage performance to a more intimate one suited for film projects, or self-taping endeavors. In this newly reformatted class, you'll also have the opportunity to apply the technique to contemporary monologues.
THURSDAYS. Scene Study: Comedy versus Drama
The battle of Comedy vs Drama; focusing on Shakespeare and Restoration style.
First three weeks - Learn the craft of comedy and how to apply that technique to any classical script.
Final three weeks - Fully explore the craft of drama in a classical text and learn how to discover the nuances within.
