Voice and Shakespeare Workshop
The goal of this workshop is to expand the actor’s vocal, physical, emotional and imaginative responsiveness to language through the Linklater voice work and to apply it to the delights and demands of Shakespeare’s text. After warming up the voice and body’s ability to release tension, open resonance, wake up range for a variety of expression and find clarity in articulation for complex thoughts, we will examine the structure of Shakespeare’s verse and explore the elements of language that bring his text to life, such as antithesis, alliteration, laddering, and the use of rhetoric. Through improvisational group work and one-on-one monologue work the class aims to increase the actor’s ability to fully and pleasurably embody the demands and joys of Shakespeare’s text.
