MOLIÈRE

June 3 – July 22, 2014 (no class July 1)

Tuesdays, 7-10pm

Cost: $350

 

This summer we’re mixing it up a little and taking the Chunnel to France.  Molière‘s theatre has some similarities to Shakespeare’s but also many differences as well.  We will be starting with a little detour though commedia dell’arte, a major influence on Molière and his writing.  We’ll then take a look at scenes from several comedies (Tartuffe, The Misanthrope, and The Miser most likely, to be confirmed), rather than sticking to a single play.  As always the focus will be on language and physicality, although Molière‘s texts will require some new approaches for the Shakespearean actor.
