But wait, there's more....
The Shakespeare Gym for the International Shakespeare Center in June was so successful that we're contemplating another ISC collaboration. Shakespeare Readers, Crows adult family members and anyone interested in dipping their toes into the invigorating waters of Shakespeare is welcome to join our Plague of All Cowards workshop. One scene from Henry IV, Part 1, parts ranging from tavern guests (no lines) to Falstaff and Prince Hal will be available. We'll do a close-read and text analysis of the scene and then work on "how to suit the action to the word, the word to the action." If you would be interested in the project, contact us through our contact form.
We've been hosting stage-fighting workshops with Fight Director Ambrose Ferber. Interest has been so great that a number of Crows are joining his Cadets de Gascon fight collaborative, now in its formative stages. We are delighted and proud to be part of this group!
We've performed at the New Mexico Art Museum's First Folio celebration, the Santa Fe Rotary Club, GLOW at the Santa Fe Botanical Garden, and done workshops at the Academy for Technology and the Classics, the May Center for Learning, Eldorado Community School, Santa Fe Prep and Santa Fe High School. We performed a reprise of The Tempest for 190 high school students at El Museo Cultural. If you would like the Crows to visit your school or organization, let us know!
Members of the company can be seen in short films produced by the International Shakespeare Center (www.internationalshakespeare.center) celebrating the arrival in Santa Fe of the Folger First Folio - check their YouTube channel (International Shakespeare Center - Five-minute Shakespeare in Santa Fe)
We look forward to seeing you on either side of the stage at these events!
