Shakespeare’s (S)words: A 6-week Track

July 6 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm EDT

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 1:00 pm on Saturday, repeating until July 6, 2024

 “These violent delights have violent ends, And in their triumph die like fire and powder, Which as they kiss consume.”
Romeo & Juliet

Our Shakespeare Seminar expands into a 6-week immersive track!

This track will look at the violence of Shakespeare and interpreting it into physical choices in the scene. We’ll begin with an introduction (or refresher course) on breaking down and reading the text. Then we will interpret the types of violent acts that can be extrapolated from the text. This will guide our exploration of options for performers and choreographers to express character and reveal story through violence.

From there classes will progress into scene work where participants will have the opportunity to apply that interpretation of the text into physical reality!

This track will run from 1 to 3:30pm June 1st through July 6th

Here are a few notes and instructions about entering the space:

-There is a buzzer located next to the front door when you arrive. Buzz 201 to be let in.
-Please make sure no one else is admitted when entering and exiting. You may contact us (instead of buzzing the number) if you need assistance.
-Please arrive no earlier than 15 minutes before the start of class, as there is a class in the space before us.
-When you enter the studio, you must remove your street shoes (there are shelves for storage by the door).
-The space has changing rooms where you will be able to get ready, store your belongings and stretch. Please walk along the wooden floor to get there.
– For training we must wear clean, indoor only shoes on the mats. These should be flat soled if possible and can not be black soled shoes. It will be fine if you need to work in socks or bare feet for the first week or two while you get these shoes.
