BEGINNER BOOT CAMP INTENSIVE
Over the course of this 5 Session Beginner Boot Camp Intensive, Peter will immerse you in Shakespeare’s world in a warm, engaging, and unpretentious environment full of:
Interactive Imagination-Based exercises
Collaborative monologue and scene-work
Thorough introduction to verse technique and scansion
Brief lectures on the life and times of Shakespeare for historical context
Tricks for memorization
Fun Games to spark creativity and demystify Shakespeare’s world
Examples of Great Shakespearean Performance
The Intensive will culminate in a final, (optionally- filmed) open class where students will perform one Shakespeare monologue and one scene that they can take with them into audition rooms and beyond!
This 5 Session Beginner Intensive is for the practical actor; the actor who wants to learn the rules, techniques, and historical contexts of heightened text but not be ruled by it; the actor who wants the visceral and spontaneous, not the poetically pre-planned; the actor who wants the muddy ground beneath their feet, not the ivory towers of the elite.
This intensive is for all of you.
THURSDAYS | 6-9:30 PM,
This rolling course is designed to be a playground and creative hub for experienced classical performers/seasoned Shakespeare veterans.
Peter will help these Disciples of the Bard to hone their craft, get out of their heads, deepen their understanding of Shakespearean verse technique/history, enhance spontaneity, and bridge the gap between obeying the verse-line and truthful, moment-to- moment performance through:
Fun verse-inspired games
Cold Reads/Audition Prep
Exploration of Shakespearean Sonnets
And so much more!
Have been in 2 Shakespeare shows or a million
Have lost the fun and spontaneity in your classical work or feel liberated and truthful in performance
Have a shaky understanding of verse technique or can spot a Spondee a mile away
This course is for YOU!
Join the beating heart of the Shakespeare Collective in NYC and let’s bring Shakespeare back to the people y’all.
