We will explore movement and creating characters physically! We will first identify archetypal characters and how they move, then we will select how we move through our personal lives, and finally explore A Midsummer Night’s Dream’s larger than life characters!

ANW Resident Artist Jeremy Rabb will be explaining the basics of scansion in Shakespeare and its function in preparing for a role. Scansion helps actors express the dialogue more clearly and find insight into the characters, while helping audiences make better sense of the language and story.
