    Shakespeare: Performing Verse

     

    This year you are training in Shakespeare/Verse.

     

    Ian McKellen and Judi Dench  "Speak the speech, I pray you,
    as I pronounced it to you, trippingly
    on the tongue: but if you mouth it,
    as many of your players do, I had as lief
    ​the town crier spoke my lines."
                         -- HAMLET

     

    Classwork focuses on scansion, characterization, breath, style, monologue and scene work. Additional work includes analysis of great classical performers through film and audio recordings and the study of Shakespeare’s life and world.
