SHAKESPEARE IN THE PARK

(Sundays)

6-WEEK INTENSIVE THEATRE FOR YOUTHS

Date: March 18th – April 22nd, 2018

Time: 2pm – 5pm

Venue: Open-Air Park, Tsinghua Campus, Wudaokou, Haidian District

Instructor:  Todd Licea

In this four day workshop, students will play fun theatre games while learning essential acting skills and building an ensemble. We will explore the basic principles of acting, including listening and responding, risk-taking and making bold choices.  The workshop will be taught in English, and so a prerequisite for entry is to have at least an intermediate level of spoken English. Students will be expected to have lines memorized for one short scene when they arrive on the first day.

The workshop culminates in the filming of each scene, thus providing students with a video for their portfolio.

“When it comes to storytelling many of the best novels, plays, poetry, and films in the English language are heavily influenced by Shakespeare’s stories, characters, language, and themes.  To know some Shakespeare provides a head start in life.  ” – Todd Licea, Actor, Instructor, & Coach
