Hip- Hop Shakespeare: Finding the
flow is an exploration of text, sound, rhythm, rhyme and tempo as they apply to
heightened and poetic texts. We will use sonnets (handed out at the
workshop) or if you have a piece you would like to work on you may bring it. We
use instrumental music with hip-hop
rhythms as our foundation for exploration. This workshop is a way in for those
who may have "shakes-fear" or who enjoy moving, dancing and being
silly while working. It is also an entrance into classical texts for the hip-hop generations. This method is
intercultural and intergenerational. Though in the workshop we will use hip-hop beats, the techniques you will
learn can be applied to all tempos, rhythms and variations of music. Whether
you have experience with Shakespeare or not this is a fun
way to enter the world of heightened poetic texts.
