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. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ • Meet and collaborate with exceptional peers. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ • Learn from a Harvard MFA teaching artist. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ • Deep-dive into the greatest texts in the English ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ language––classical AND contemporary.
