Since 1919, The New School has been home to scholars, creators, and activists who challenge convention and boldly make their mark on the world.
To celebrate this groundbreaking legacy, we are opening our doors to the public for a weeklong festival of innovative performances, talks, workshops, screenings, exhibitions, and more.

On October 1–6, 2019, join us as we reflect on a century of world-changing ideas and together imagine a new kind of future.

Classical Studio 1.1/1.2 is a project-based, two-semester course for directors and actors in their second year focused on developing the skills necessary to direct a play by William Shakespeare. The course begins with an examination of the processes of rehearsal, starting with text analysis, early staging, and the honing of textually specific and physically engaged acting. Directors each select a play which they spend the fall semester adapting for a small cast and to be performed in an hour. The spring semester focuses on methods of rehearsal as each adaptation is mounted for performance at the end of the semester.
