Shakespeare: Performing Verse
This year you are training in Shakespeare/Verse.
"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."
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.
