Helping veterans heal with Shakespeare Workshop

•   Sat, Jun 10, 2017 9am -  6pm
•   Sun, Jun 11, 2017 9am - 5pm

Feast of Crispian will hold a West Coast introductory training in the hope of inspiring other theater practitioners to create programs in their communities that support underserved populations in pursuit of Post Traumatic Growth! We also hope to inspire counselors and clinicians to seek out arts organizations that can offer their patients a home for their creative expression. Cutting edge neuroscience suggests that the arts are essential in supporting a healing path out of what can be an endless loop of traumatic activation or the numbness of disassociation.

Feast of Crispian, Inc. (FoC) has been working with veterans with PTSD and reintegration challenges for nearly five years and has had national recognition based on the positive effects for our participants. Our Acting Shakespeare intensives have seen hundreds of veterans explore and express their emotional selves, discover their voice, reconnect with the sense of camaraderie that they miss from the military, and begin the process of knowing, “who am I now”?

The rhymes, rhythms and rich metaphors of Shakespeare’s poetry work in unique ways in the brain. PTSD can disconnect the brain’s communication with itself and Shakespeare can help reconnect those lines of communication.

 This 14-hour training will give participants:
- A foundational understanding of the philosophy and theories behind theater as a trauma intervention, including an introduction to related recent neuroscience.
-  Techniques that allow participants to successfully act scenes from Shakespeare immediately.
- Simple acting exercises that help participants experience, and pay attention to, manageable emotional activation.

Theater Puget Sound - Seattle Center House
Saturday, June 10th, 9:00 AM – 6:00 PM

Classical Actor Continuing Education at Seattle Shakespeare Company
Join us for a series of skill enhancement classes utilizing Shakespeare’s text.

Breathe Life Into the Words
The Breath and Embodying Shakespeare’s Text
Taught by Linklater designated instructor and Seattle Shakespeare Company Voice and Text Director, Kimberly White

The Shakespeare’s language demands that we access our full humanity in order to bring his characters and stories to life.  A responsive and free breath is essential to this process.  It is the key to creativity, emotion, imagination and impulse.

Based in the Linklater technique, this clinic for working actors focuses on the process of connecting the actor to his or her authentic voice through freeing the breath while speaking Shakespeare’s text.  Utilizing individual and group work, participants will learn techniques to develop a fully responsive voice and body for Shakespeare’s language.

Please be prepared with a piece of Shakespeare text that you are passionate about regardless of whether it is age or gender appropriate.  Wear loose clothing and layers.

Dates:  Mondays, Oct. 27, Nov. 3 & 10, 2008   
Time:   6:30-9:30PM
Location:  To be announced
Cost:  Participants - $135

The Art of Persuation
Taught by Julliard-trained instructor and actor Richard Ziman
The use of rhetoric in Shakespeare comes from the oral tradition of persuasion, a tradition not well-used in our modern times full of sound bytes. By revealing the underlying rhetorical structure to Shakespeare's text, the actor is led down the corridors of figures of speech, the powers of persuasion, and the passion and rhythm inherent in the language. As a tool, rhetoric is used to unlock the meanings of the speech in order to give the classical actor clarity and choices to use on stage.

This clinic will give working actors the tools to recognize and use rhetoric to infuse their work with passion and clarity.
Dates:  Mondays, March 16, 23, 30      
Time:   6:30-9:30PM
Location:  TBA
Cost:  $135

Registration and Payment
Registration and pre-payment required.  To register, please call the Seattle Shakespeare Company Education office at 206-733-8228 x212 or email
