A111: Scene Study and Language Study: Acting in Foreign Languages in Splash Spring 2019 (Apr. 20, 2019)
Maybe you've read Spanish literature, like La Casa de Bernarda Alba, or maybe you've witnessed depictions of bilingual culture like in the 1957 Broadway show West Side Story. Regardless of your language of interest and previous acting experience, we're going to dive into foreign-language excerpts as well as English translations and multilingual scenes. We'll warm up, discuss techniques for language study, pick scenes in English or languages of choice, and then rehearse and run our scenes for each other!
