Course Description

“​​The only class of its kind in New York City” Contemporary theater and Shakespeare under one roof. In SoHo Shakespeare Company’s Scene Study, students are encouraged to explore both classical and modern scenes. Why mix it up? Because the same techniques that work for Shakespeare work for Wilson, Kushner, Nottage, Majok, and Guirgis. Taught by director of education Jesse Charles Friedman, Scene Study offers actors an opportunity to partner with talented peers, explore Shakespeare’s most beloved scenes, AND apply the Action-Based Imaging Technique to contemporary work. When you treat the text with radical specificity and imbue a character with your own depth of experience, the play comes to life. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ • Build the muscles of impulsivity, vulnerability, and tactical precision ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ • Learn from Harvard MFA teaching artists ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ • Practice the tenets of the Action-Based Imaging Technique ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ • Collaborate with exceptional peers and professional actors The course runs for 4 weeks and culminates with a showcase in the final class.
