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 with daily voice and movement classes that will open resonance, wake up range for a variety of expression and find clarity in articulation for complex thoughts, you will awaken your responsiveness to the richness of his imagery, and examine the structure of the Shakespeare’s verse and explore the elements of language that bring his text to life – such as antithesis, alliteration, onomatopoeia, laddering and the use of rhetoric. Through improvisational group work and one-on-one monologue work the workshop aims to increase the actor’s ability to fully and pleasurably embody the demands and joys of Shakespeare’s text. Our teachers offer an integrated approach to the work where each class complements and builds upon the others, and each participant receives careful and considered attention and support. Classes include voice, speech, movement, acting/text, elements of language and Sound & Movement.
