Join us this February for a unique chance to explore Shakespearean text from theatrical tour de force; Kate Hennig.
Beginning with a joyful, physical exploration of fundamental rhythm, meter, and verse line, participants will move on to detailed analysis and scansion practice both at the table and on their feet. They will explore a scene, where everyone gets to play, with the aid of some “barking” questions from Tim Carroll. They’ll finish off with some of the rhetorical structure and action at play in a soliloquy. Throughout the process they will be applying the work to their own audition piece (30 lines max.), and on the final day will work that monologue in front of the group.
This intensive, 15 hour masterclass, is intended for deep exploration into Shakespearean text.
Now in its fifth incarnation, this annual Masterclass has become a wonderful way to usher in a new year and brush up on your Shakespeare. Past teachers have been Diane D’Aquila, Jeffrey Wetsch, Chick Reid, Tom McCamus, and Seana McKenna.
