Whether you are well versed in Shakespeare performance or a relative newcomer to working with heightened text, this weekend will expand your understanding, deepen your personal connection and sharpen your skill set.

Courage, truth and YOU, are the foundations of this creative journey.

While the workshop operates within a set structure, one on one text work will be inspired by the needs of each unique participant. The number of participants is kept small in order to best facilitate individual attention and time for exploration.

If you want to feel more connected in your work, more confident in your Shakespeare and perhaps even more inspired in your life - don't miss out on this workshop! I am headed back to New York in December and other projects will have me out of town until May 2014 at the earliest!

So get it while it's hot!!! ;o)

To request a spot or ask a question email me at
iamcoulter1@gmail.com

Further information on what to expect and prepare will be released as placements are confirmed.

Thanks!
Iam

What former students have to say about working with Iam Coulter*:

"Iam has a delicate sensitivity to each person in the room and what they need. ...she approaches each one so differently, I recognize what a safe place she has created. She challenges each of us deeply, but does not leave us floundering in the water alone.”

“I could not be more grateful for the opportunity she facilitated for me...to say the truths that are at the very (core) of me...The potency of that short amount of one-on-one work may alter the course of my whole life.”

“She called to the deepest places in me...”

“Iam equipped me with skills for understanding, breaking down and expressing all the intricacies of Shakespearean text. ...she equipped us all to be more fully alive and free as human beings.”

“Take her class.”

“I felt safe...to throw myself into the situation with (Iam) guiding and directing me. She has a gentle way of reaching into the deepest parts of me, challenging me to be brave, while also taking me by the hand and coming along for the ride.”

“Iam made herself emotionally available and was invested in my process. Her commitment is treasured and beautiful.”

*Iam Coulter is an actor, director, teaching artist, and baby clown. From 2004 - 2011, she served as the artistic producer of The Shakespeare Company in Calgary, Alberta. Her appetite for greater knowledge and experience led her to Lenox, Massachusetts and Shakespeare & Company in 2012, where she trained with renowned master teachers and internationally acclaimed Shakespeare experts. Iam has continued her studies with those masters, absorbing all she can while honing her own performance skills and developing her teaching style. Her great admiration for the company and its vision draw her back time and time again, as it does this December/January.

When in Calgary, Iam teaches Shakespeare performance at Rocky Mountain College, Rosebud School of the Arts, Willow Park school and through workshops.

As an actor, Iam has performed with Shakespeare & Company, Theatre Calgary, Vertigo Mystery Theatre, Alberta Theatre Projects, Theatre Junction and The Shakespeare Company. In April she will appear in Romeo and Juliet at the Citadel Theatre in Edmonton as a participant in the 2014 Banff/Citadel Professional Theatre Program.
