Jan 2: Whyt Whey Presents the Saturday Night Solar: Shakespeare’s Advice to the Players: Authentic Renaissance Acting Technique

Please join Whyt Whey’s own Sayyida Laila al-Sanna’ al-Andalusiyya’ in bringing Shakespeare to life!

The works of Shakespeare, Marlowe, Johnson and their contemporaries are ill-suited to modern acting technique, which tends to place feeling over form. Renaissance theatre, on the other hand, demands that we obey the dictates of form first, and let that guide our feeling. Using the techniques espoused by the great Shakespearian actor and director, Peter Hall, this class will walk students through a process designed to honor the form of Renaissance theatre, in order to produce thrilling and authentic acting performances.

Sayyida Laila al-Sanna’ al-Andalusiyya’ recently stepped down as East Kingdom Queen’s Bard, and is the former Bard of Caid. She has a Master’s degree in theatre, and has taught acting and dramatic analysis at a university level and in the SCA.
