"Swear, Drink, Dance": A Contact Shakespeare Event
EMIT is proud to introduce a new event series called Contact Shakespeare!

What is Contact Shakespeare?

Contact Shakespeare takes physical theatre and improv to uniquely explore Shakespeare's work!

Our very first event will be an exploration of Shakespeare's The Henriad facilitated by Phoebe Brooks.  Actors will improvise a performance using physical theatre, a basic outline of the text, and self selected lines. Audiences will get to have the experience of both watching the performers create something truly unique right before there eyes as well as become part of the action themselves (while drinking wine!)  

Director's Statement by Phoebe Brooks:

William Shakespeare is so well known for his magnificent use of language, we wanted to take some time to celebrate his mastery of the art storytelling. We've stripped down and consolidated the essential plots and characters in The Henriad (King Richard II, King Henry IV (Parts 1&2) and King Henry V) into one adventure-packed story. Even more exciting, we're relying on contact improvisation and our ensemble to impart this tale without rehearsal and with barely any words! Wander with us through the epic of two unlikely kings grappling with betrayal, parenthood, and bravery.
