CYMBELINE – Week 16 – January 30

We spent most of our time on 1.6: Iachimo’s meeting with (and attempted seduction of) Imogen.  Both Christopher (Iachimo) and Patrick (Imogen) are doing well with their lines.  Their current challenge is to clarify their objectives, beat by beat.  That clarity will support their other choices:  speech measures, key words, focal points, and actions.

People who end up in prison are often well-practiced in hiding their intentions – not only from others, but also from themselves.  Acting Shakespeare requires a clarity, focus, and forcefulness that runs against this grain.
