SHAKE ON THE BLOCK
Students Jaliene Camacho, Armando Velasquez III, Jadon Dawson
Jade McClinton-Dorley, Jalen McClinton-Dorley have been hard at work in this free seven-week workshop that helps young writers discover the magic, fun and some would say craziness of the immortal bard through playwriting, adaptation and performance. AND THEY ARE READY TO SHARE THEIR WORK WITH YOU!!! This year students worked on breaking down Shakespeare’s King Lear, which they then adapted it for performance by adding street slang and modern English. Students were introduced to the rudiments of the theater process and develop skills in acting, memorization, adaptation, staging and performance while using their imagination to create cool, dynamic new characters based on Shakespeare’s King Lear.
