Breathe, Think, Feel and Speak at the same time-in the same moment, this is the exhilarating challenge of acting Shakespeare!
In this workshop we will do an in-depth exploration of what it means to Embody Language through a series of vocal and physical exercises that re-awaken and develop the actors emotional, imaginative, and sensorial responsiveness to language. At the center of the workshop is the Voice- developing the range, power and clarity needed to embody and communicate the depth, subtlety and magnitude of Shakespeare.
Bring a speech you are passionate about, 14-20 verse lines.
