LAMDA Masterclass: Shakespeare's First Folio

Sunday, October 20, 2013 at 1:00 pm

Theresa Lang Community and Student Center, Arnhold Hall 55 West 13th Street, Room I-202, New York, NY 10011

In an event sponsored by Eugene Lang College, the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts (LAMDA) will present a "Shakespeare’s First Folio Master Class" presented by Rodney Cottier, LAMDA’s Head of the Drama School.

Take part in this unique interactive workshop and change your view of the play script forever. 

Rodney Cottier’s Shakespeare workshop takes students through a lively history of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre; explores questions of Elizabethan staging in contemporary performance; delves into Shakespeare’s First Folio; and uses these discussions to approach Shakespeare’s text by working select scenes from the complete plays, with special attention to the opening of King Lear. 

This masterclass is interactive, stimulating, and a great deal of fun!  It is free of charge, runs 3 hours and is geared to all levels of experience, with something in it for everyone – from those just starting out, to old pros.  All are welcome, and the more who attend, the merrier.  No special preparation is required, but if they can, participants should please bring copies of Shakespeare’s complete works, any edition.
