This work is designed to serve both professional and aspiring actors, age 21 and older, who want to speak Shakespeare with clarity, skill, and passion. The Intensive is strategically limited to 12 participants to ensure that everyone receives personal coaching and attention.
Exercises in Linklater voice, Alexander and Trish Arnold movement, and text work based on John Barton's work and Neil Freeman's First Folio research, will be used to free up breath, voice, impulses, imagination, and the actor's intelligence. Individual monologue coaching will focus on developing a personal, passionate connection to Shakespeare's text. Participants can expect to leave the Intensive personally enriched and enlightened.
