Measure For Measure at Westover School

One of the great things about teaching artist residencies is the opportunity to see what students create in class.

As an ensemble, we are discovering how to play with buoyancy and confidence. Since most of the work is highly physical, a number of students are also fulfilling athletic curriculum requirements; an innovative approach to bridging the sports and arts divide which could serve as a model for schools facing budget issues! In the coming sessions, we will increasingly focus exercises around Measure For Measure, coaxing living, breathing, alive characters off the page and onto the stage! Stay tuned…
