Join us for our Shakespeare Weekend Intensive in Dallas, TX on April 19-21, 2019. Designed to meet the needs of professional actors and theatre students who seek an introduction to Shakespeare & Company's training methods, as well as alumni who wish to refresh and reconnect with the work, the Weekend Intensive integrates voice, movement, and monologue work. Participants explore ways to unlock the emotional and intellectual content inherent in Shakespeare's language, yielding a direct relationship between actor and text.
This Weekend Intensive will be taught by Designated Linklater Voice Teacher Dave Demke. During the workshop, participants will work on a Shakespeare monologue of their choice as well as do Linklater voice and movement work.
The Weekend Intensive Format:
Friday (7-10 p.m.) is an introduction to Shakespeare & Company’s aesthetic and an opportunity for the actors to shift gears and focus on their work through a series of exercises involving voice, body and memory work.
Saturday (10 a.m.-10 p.m.) focuses on the actor’s individual voice and experiences, which are incorporated into a monologue that the actor has prepared for the class.
Sunday (10 a.m.- 4 p.m.) moves more vigorously through the voice and body work, with the actors reconnecting with Shakespeare’s text, revisiting their monologues and exploring how the structure of the verse might influence character and performance.
