This workshop aims to provide basic tools to explore the possibilities and clues written into Shakespeare’s verse. In this body-based approach, we’ll work on the emotions that manifest through the text and into us, our partners and the audience. We’ll go through the specificities of iambic pentameter and will put in practice the rhythm intimately connected to Shakespeare in several scenes. The theoretical and practical exercises we’ll do are based on my work and practice at LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art).

Please come in comfortable clothes, in which you can move (joggings, sweatpants, etc).
Should you wish to practice on a specific bit of Shakespearean verse, please bring it with you (by heart or on paper). If not, texts will be provided.
