Blacks and the Bard with Kimberly Hébert!
Who’s ready to unlock the world of Shakespeare?! Join the 4 week virtual workshop with Black Rebirth Collective Founder, Kimberly Hébert, and get ready to unpack these classical texts! This workshop will transform the way you think about and approach this kind of work and empower you in your journey of discovering.
Have you hesitated to dive into Shakespeare or classical texts? Have you thought, “That’s just not for me”? This workshop is for YOU.
This is a 4 week workshop that will help you:
- Unpack why many Black actors have mental blocks when approaching classical texts;
- Instill confidence in the natural voice of Black actors when engaging with classical texts;
- Introduce participants to approachable Shakespeare works;
- Invite a sense of “play” within a Shakespeare play
This workshop will be lead by Kimberly Hébert who studied Shakespeare in London from reknowned RADA and LAMDA tutors and has worked in acclaimed classical performances at Chicago Shakespeare Theatre, Intiman Theatre and Court Theatre. Her approach to text is truthful and individual, and her style of sharing is communal and embrasing. She is someone who finds joy in supporting actors on the journey of discovery.
This is a workshop that will remind participants that they have everything they need and more to successfully engage with classical texts.
