Learning a new language employs many of the same skills involved in acting and theatre. Both the actor and the language learner step onto a stage of a new cultural landscapes where even common scenarios and points of reference can present themselves as new and unfamiliar. In this class we will use typical theatre exercises and improvisations that, in addition to the use of the body, require the spoken word. We will also read and work through plays and scripts from Italian authors. Students must be able to speak, read and listen at an intermediate Italian language level as the sessions will be held in Italian. Join us for this fun immersion into Italian and acting with a native speaker and educator of both language and theatre.
