Exploring extreme physicality, clowning, and how it informs personal connection in playing Shakespeare. Participants will be immersed in a two-day intensive wherein they will visit with simplicity the actor/audience relationship, frolic in the days and nights of the clown, stare off the side of the cliff, and push physical boundaries. All participants are required to come dressed in move-able clothing, and comfortable footwear, and have 8-10 lines of Shakespeare. Ages 16-100 welcome.
