California Shakespeare Theater is proud to present, with our friends at Berkeley Repertory Theatre, Shakespeare’s Verse: Discovery and Action, a workshop taught by director and Cal Shakes Associate Artist Daniel Fish (Measure for Measure, Merchant of Venice, Cymbeline). The workshop introduces experienced actors and directors to a rigorous and practical technique of working with Shakespearean verse. Daniel Fish appropriates a method developed largely by Peter Hall and John Barton and makes it work for American actors by synthesizing the emotional, psychological and physical demands of bringing these texts to life. The impulse for this technique and for the class comes from a belief that Shakespeare’s plays are living works that demand constant reinvention for a contemporary society.
When: Friday July 9, 7–9pm • Saturday, July 10, 1–5pm • Sunday July 11, 1–5pm
Where: Nevo Education Center, 2071 Addison St, Berkeley (next door to Berkeley Rep)
