MSF will be hosting Dennis Krausnick of Shakespeare & Co, who will present their classic weekend Intensive Training
Friday 7pm-10pm – 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 10am-10pm – focuses on the actor’s individual voice and experiences, which are incorporated into a monologue that the actor has prepared for the class.
Sunday 10am-4pm – 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.
The tuition will be $200 to participate in the monologue work on Saturday and $50 if you just like to observe the monologue work and participate in the Friday night and Sunday exercises. A limited number of participants will be able to work on a monologue; but everyone will be able to participate in all the exercises.
