KLVC's 2019 workshop season closed on an artistic high! This past week saw the third time Canada's Stratford Festival Theatre has subsidized ten of its young actors to come and work with Kristin on Voice and Shakespeare. What a wonderful week it has been! Such talent and such passionate commitment to working on their craft!! The voice work challenged an ever-deepening connection to the emotional and imaginative energies demanded by Shakespeare while the "advice to the players" (hidden in plain sight in the imagery, rhythms and forms of the verse) became an exciting challenge to the specificity of thought and the courage of revelation. With a passionate determination to absorb and grow, everyone soared. Sonnets, soliloquies, speeches challenged the speakers and they all found the thrill of a new dimension of thinking, feeling, playing Shakespeare. We look forward to the next Stratford visit in 2021.
