At the heart of the technique… is the actor’s understanding of the epic size of theater – in the body, in the voice, in the mind, and in the soul – an understanding that Shakespeare forces actors to embrace their whole selves by exploring man’s Promethean battle with God, fate, and his own personal demons.”
Summer Shakespeare is an answer into the vital importance of Shakespeare to the life of the actor.
Offered in the summer only, this intensive designed for the advanced actor to further develop his/her sense of the epic size of theater.
