Finding Meaning Today: Romeo and Juliet
with Sarah Lucht
Using the text of Romeo and Juliet, we’ll explore the familiar and multi-layered language of Shakespeare, the universally recognizable characters, and the themes of young, ideal love, parental love, mentorship, friendship, and “star-crossed” destiny. Each class will delve into one of the acts as we explore the language from a myriad of perspectives and open up the possibilities of understanding and performing Shakespeare. There will be opportunities for all experience levels to read, embody, and interpret the play. The final two classes will be an opportunity to work with the play in an original and personal way and create a devised (collaborative) piece for the Zoom format.
No prior experience required – just a willingness to connect with the story and language of this play.
