Instant Theatre Berlin presents Shakespeare NOW!
In this 10-week course we will look at how an actor can find a sense of fun and play in bringing these very old Shakespeare texts to life.

We will learn how to understand and analyze Shakespeare’s use of Elizabethan English as well as how to recite in iambic pentameter (a form of verse used by Shakespeare in his plays)

Over the 10 weeks each student will build a character based on a monologue either dramatic/tragic, comedic or romantic as well as developing a spoken soliloquy as a group.

In this time we will play with different ways of building characters for rehearsing, staging and performing Shakespeare texts.

The workshop will end in a rehearsed performance.

Please be warned! While native English is not essential to take this course, be advised that it requires a high level of English. Please don’t hesitate to contact us for any questions about this.

Please as part of your application note if you would like to do a comedic, tragic, dramatic, or romantic text, or if you had something you particularly wanted to try. We’d like to decide on most texts before the first class.
