How would Shakespeare’s actors craft dynamic, clear performances without the aid of a director blocking the show? How do the structure of his plays and soliloquies allow you to harness the energy between the audience, your fellow players, your environment, and your selfe to effortlessly play with clarity, honesty, and ease in any environment?
In this Lab-style, explorative workshop, you will develop a unique and embodied sense of your own stage-craft – tapping into hints from the text, the dynamics of your ensemble, and your natural impulses to solve directors’ problems before they even know there’s a problem to be solved.
With cue-script in hand, actors can play not just to the words being said, but can immediately respond to the improvised stage movements of their fellow actors, continually creating beautiful stage pictures for a director to shape – or, as Shakespeare’s actors themselves, play together without need for a director at all.
