In this course, we will focus on four later plays of Shakespeare: Hamlet, Macbeth, Othello and Cymbeline. The format of this class will combine lectures, discussions, supplementary film screenings, and student performances and other in-class activities, such as costuming, chanting, pantomimes, wordplay, soliloquy analysis, adaptative and improvised scenarios, line-by-line analysis and interpretation, and comparison of videos.
