SHAKESPEARE FORUM CLASSES

 

Act 1, Scene 1 (6 weeks)

Whether you are a Shakespeare newbie or a polished pro, we'll meet you where you are and guide you through the next steps of your artistic process. Through personalized exercises, monologues, and scene work, you'll deepen your understanding of how to express your truths in Shakespeare's language. We'll explore vocal and physical aspects of your work, challenging your doubts and liberating you from your habits and old stories. You'll heighten your presence and grow your sense of play.

This class will start September 9th at El Barrio's Art Space at 7pm.

Cost of the class is $400*

Virtual Verse and Text Class (6 weeks)

If the mere mention of iambic pentameter gives you the willies, we can help!  We’ll explore the structures and mechanics of Shakespeare’s writing, and you’ll learn fun techniques that can quickly open up your personal connection to any text, empowering you to make active, creative choices.  We’ll progress from the basics of Shakespeare’s verse to advanced performance techniques, encountering the Beatles, hip-hop, and Hamilton along the way.  We’ll learn about “the rules” and when it’s a good idea to break them.  This ain’t your grandpa’s Shakespeare — this language is alive with beauty, humor, and strangeness.  Knowledge is power, so come play!

This class will start September 18th on Zoom, 10:30am ET - 1:30pm ET.

Cost of the class is $250*
