Doth not misseth this!
The Soothplayers are famous for making up Shakespeare plays on the spot. This workshop will help you hone the skills they use to do so, especially improvising in verse, playing with both sound and sense. They will focus on the aspects of Shakespearean style that offer strong improvisation tools: luxuriating in sounds (offering productive mistakes), extending metaphors, and turning intense emotion into action (soliloquies/asides). Whether you are interested in improving your genre work or in playing with poetry, this workshop will offer you both solo and group exercises to incorporate into your training, and it promises to be good silly fun.
