The International Shakespeare Center invites you to take part in professional classical/shakespearean acting workshops with Masters graduates from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA): Ariana Karp and Will McKay.
The LAMDA conservatory approach offers a holistic perspective on practice, helping actors access classical text through physical engagement. The workshops will feature vocal, physical, and group exercises for actors of all ages.
During their last visit to Santa Fe, Karp directed Ducdame Ensemble’s Dames of Thrones during the First Folio February events, and McKay performed in the show. Both acted as demonstrators for LAMDA faculty Judith Phillips and Rodney Cottier in their workshops.
The Tuesday July 19 workshop includes a series of vocal, physical, and group exercises to approach Shakespeare or other classical text from a holistic perspective and physical engagement. Actors should bring in a classical speech from Shakespeare or other Elizabethan, Jacobean, or Restoration playwright of between 12 to 25 lines.
Tuition: $60 each class (Saturday July 16 & Tuesday July 19); participants may choose one or both classes.
