TSC Study Day: The Tempest
The Shakespeare Companys Tempest Study Day

Date:   Saturday 21 September 2019
Time:   2:00pm - 5:00pm
Price:  $15.00 + fees

Location: Inside Out Theatre
Unit A02 - Eau Claire Market
200 Barclay Parade SW
Calgary, AB, T2P 4R5

TSCs inaugural Study Day will be tied to The Shakespeare Company's production of The Tempest (19th September to 5th October, in Vertigos Studio Theatre).  

Study Days are intended for adult learners, as a form of life-long learning, but we will very happily welcome youth who are interested.

The focus of Study Days is on textual interpretation.  Aided by a professor and several actors from the production, participants will consider how our appreciation may be enriched by academic and professional insight into Shakespeare and his work.

We are delighted that Darren Dyck, Assistant Professor of English Literature at Ambrose University, will lead this three-hour Tempest Study Day.  He is a Shakespeare scholar well-rooted in the classics of English and ancient literature, who is above all committed to close textual reading and teaching in the liberal arts tradition.

In the first seminar hour, participants will consider the play in its context: what was Shakespeare thinking when he wrote The Tempest?  Why did he turn to the genre of romance only at the end of his career?  What ideas does the play explore?  And what do we do with a character like Caliban?

In the second hour, participants will get up close and personal with the language of Shakespeares text, looking at the poetry of the play to figure out how Shakespeare uses words.  This may involve some small-group discussion.

In the final hour, we will be joined by two actors from TSCs Tempest, for a discussion of how the text informs their on-stage work and what they are learning through this production.
The goal of Study Days is to help participants get more out of reading and viewing classical drama, as well as to contribute to the growth of a community of learners around The Shakespeare Company.
