surfing shakespeare

At its best, acting Shakespeare feels like surfing - we balance on the sturdy rhythm of his incredible language & the music of pentameter - and fall forward - riding the bottomless, infinite wave of the universal subconscious - humanity writ large. But if we can't get on the board. . . we drown!

(And so does the audience!)

Fear of falling stops many of us from trying - but tricks to get 'on top' of the Bard's brilliant, complex word-play aren't as hard as we may think. In this revolutionary class, Brian Avers unlocks the mysteries, inspiring your TRUE potential for climbing the summit of drama,  and discovering the extraordinary rush. . . of Surfing Shakespeare.
