Playing with Shakespeare Verse

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!

She holds a masters degree in Expressive Arts Therapy from Lesley University and attended drama school in London.
