Playing with Shakespeare Verse (FREE)

RSVP for this FREE WORKSHOP: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080A4AAAA62AA6F94-free

Movement, Voice and Text: Playing with Shakespeare’s Verse
Monday November 18 6:30-8pm
Instructor: Karin Trachtenberg

This 2 hour workshop demystifies Shakespeare’s verse by exploring how the meaning of his words comes alive thru the voice and body. For both experienced actors and those completely new to Shakespeare, exercises in breath, movement and voice will be introduced as a means to connect with his language. We will play together as a group with his text - NO preparation or prior experience required. However, if anyone has a few lines of verse (iambic pentameter) memorized that you’d like to work on, please bring a hard copy of the text with you.

Offered free of charge and open to all at the Hopkinton Center for the Arts, the workshop is an introduction to the Voice and Movement for Actors course being taught this winter. It also serves as a complement to the “Evenings with Will” series. Whether you are a fan of the Bard or just curious, come experience how fun speaking Shakespeare can be!

Karin Trachtenberg has over 30 years of experience in the theater as an actor, director, teacher, producer and arts administrator. She holds a masters degree in Expressive Arts Therapy from Lesley University and attended drama school in London. Karin has taught theater and arts education at Clark University, Lesley University’s Creative Arts in Education Program, Pine Manor College and The Schauspiel Gemainschaft in Zurich Switzerland. She has performed at various theater venues throughout the Boston area including Zeitgeist Stage, Roxbury Rep, Newton Nomadic, Newton Theater Company, 4th Wall Stage, Stageloft Rep, Fort Point Theater Channel, Marblehead Little Theatre and Open Theatre Project. She is currently enrolled in the Master Teacher certification program with legendary voice and Shakespeare coach Patsy Rodenburg.
