Speaking Shakespeare One: Secrets of the Acting Trade

Speaking Shakespeare I

with Nick Sandys

Ever wondered how actors break open the secret clues in Shakespearean language and verse? In this class designed for non-actors, Nick Sandys, Remy Bumppo’s Artistic Director and a long-time actor/director of Shakespeare, will lead you through the intricacies, treasures, and directions for actors buried just below the surface of Shakespearean language. Providing a series of practical tools that cover topics such as punctuation, scansion, rhetoric, and imagery, as well as delving into the printing history of Shakespeare’s plays, Nick will lead the class on a fascinating linguistic journey deep inside the working actor’s process, in order to reveal the seeds of emotions, motivations, and character encased in Shakespeare’s verse–like the sparks encase in burning coal!
