Masters of Modern Drama – A Journey Through Chekhov, Ibsen, Strindberg, and Shaw

This six-week advanced scene study class led by Dan Daily will explore the underlying sensitivity and passion in the heightened texts of the masters of Modern Drama (Chekhov, Ibsen, Strindberg, Shaw) and develop the tools to create compelling performances for contemporary audiences. Actors will focus on breath support, speech work, and movement exercises to connect the body and voice with the text for a realistic and evocative interpretation. Through Monologue Study and Scene Work, participants will analyze the rhythms and phonetics of these four horsemen of classical text and build techniques for utilizing the text to support their speech and define characterization.
