Shakespeare's King Lear
The cast of the ISC King Lear have been working with this play for a full year. They began in October 2017 and spent six months reading it closely; they participated in private workshops with Shakespearean acting coaches from the Stratford Shakespeare Festival in Ontario and with the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. They spent hours in fight workshops with Ambrose Ferber, director of Cadets de Gascon. They worked regularly with Dr. Robin Williams on speaking the text using the meter and clues Shakespeare provides, and with director Caryl Farkas on discovering what happens when the play is on its feet and relationships begin to develop.
We all look forward to experiencing the profound riches of this play with actors who have immersed themselves in its layers and subtleties.
