Contemporary Monologues, co-taught with Hannah Coyle
Saturday, April 25, 2020
« Well, Tommy has proposed to me again. Tommy really does nothing but propose to me… » If you did classic monologues in the fall, here’s your chance to apply what we learned to modern situations. The art of the monologue has long been a staple of theater. It allows us to hear a new story, marvel at a character’s eloquence or glimpse behind a slipping mask of sanity. A monologue can last for a whole play in the case of a one-person show, or be a brief moment of comic relief. Although the texts may be simpler, the modern monologue is often a more difficult exercise in that what seems quotidian is in fact rife with emotion and subtext. In this workshop, we will explore well known and lesser known monologues from contemporary plays and see how to lend our own real emotions and imagination to an imaginary person and circumstance.
This workshop is for students with some previous acting experience or who have already taken one of our classes or workshops. English level – intermediate to bilingual.
