Secrets of Acting Shakespeare: First Folio Technique
Platform: Live Online Workshop | Tutor: Sarah Hannah | Time (GMT): 6.00pm – 9.00pm | Level: Intermediate – Professional
With the recent resurgence of period dramas both on stage and especially on the screen, the demand for ‘Classically Trained’ actors has never been greater. Changes in the way we audition has also seen an increase in actors being called upon to audition and self-tape with Shakespearian monologues leaving many actors intimidated and uncertain about how to best prepare. Ideal for actors with previous experience looking to step up their game.
Rarely taught outside a handful of top drama schools, First Folio Technique is widely seen as the gold standard for classical acting. It also makes performing Shakespeare a lot easier!
Ideal for actors with some experience looking to improve, this intensive online workshop will lead you through simple guidelines to demystify and detangle the text, uncover Shakespeare’s clues and learn how to easily decipher what lines mean and how to deliver them.
This course can be complimented by our Shakespeare’s Words: The Rules of Verse Speaking – and how Shakespeare Breaks Them! course.
