During this 5 day workshop, we will explore how those clues can illuminate Shakespeare's seemingly arcane language and reveal meaning, sense, rhythm, pace and character. We will work with the text of As You Like It.

Warm ups will include Chekhov technique, Spacial Dynamics® exercises, and improvisation games.
