Subject: Patrick Tucker Workshop at Tufts (free)
For Boston Area Shakespeareans and Actors:
The Tufts University Department of Drama & Dance will be sponsoring a
free Shakespearean acting workshop with Patrick Tucker, this Saturday,
November 19th, from 2-5pm, in the Balch Arena Theatre on the Tufts
University (Medford) campus.
Formerly with the Royal Shakespeare Company, member of the Artistic
Directorate of London's Shakespeare's Globe, and founder and director of
London's Original Shakespeare Company, Patrick Tucker is a prolific
stage and television director who has pioneered techniques for acting
Shakespeare based in the First Folio. Tucker is one of the world's
leading instructors in verse speaking (his general approach to verse
speaking is similar to that of John Barton, with whom he worked at the
RSC). Tucker's controversial techniques for acting Shakespeare based in
the First Folio have demonstrated profound positive results both for
student and professional performers. Tucker is the author of The
Secrets of Acting Shakespeare: The Original Approach, The Secrets of
Screen Acting, and most recently, The Actors Survival Handbook.
Directions: The Balch Arena Theatre is located in the Aidekman Arts
Center on the Tufts campus. For a map, Google or Mapquest the following
address: 30 Talbot Avenue, Medford, MA, or see the Tufts University
website (http://www.tufts.edu). Talbot Avenue is closed at College
Avenue for construction, so drivers will want to approach from either
the street to the north or the west.
