Shakespeare Sonnet Workshop


The International Shakespeare Center Santa Fe presents: Shakespeare Sonnet Workshop

Readers, actors, directors, and the general public will learn how to find the meaning in the text.

This workshop involves an exploration of Shakespeare’s sonnets through voice and body, breathing life into the literary form. It will start with shared exercises designed to help actors and readers experience words in the oral/aural dimension, rather than as literary “shapes” on the page, focusing on breath, sound and articulation, and the practice of active listening.

We will reappraise form—rhythm, rhyme, the image, rhetorical shapes, the texture of language in assonance and alliteration—through speaking and listening. How do rhyme, the variation and quick change of rhythm and thought, the choice of image, the specificity of the word, affect the actor and listener?

If time permits, shared exercises will then be applied to workshopping sonnets with individual actors.

This workshop is led by Judith Phillips, Head of Voice at LAMDA, and Joanna Read, Principal at LAMDA.
