:: Led by Br. Reinaldo Martinez-Cubero
Until the printing press made ownership of books commonplace, the Bible was experienced by listening to it being read aloud, and it was largely written with this in mind. Expand your experience of Holy Scripture by exploring different modes of delivering aloud the words of the Bible. We will use a variety of acting methods, including light and easy physical exercises, diction exercises, games, and journaling as a prelude to dramatic readings of scripture. No acting experience is necessary, but do come with an open mind, a relaxed stance, and a desire to know scripture in a new way.
Br. Reinaldo has been a voice teacher and theatre director for 24 years and before entering the order of the Holy Cross worked as a voice teacher and theatre director in NYC for 18 years. He founded The Pied Piper Children’s Theatre of NYC in 1999, and Delphi Theatre in 2004. With those two organizations he produced over 130 plays, musical, and operas, and taught acting, scene study, and musical theatre repertoire classes. As a singer/actor he has performed in operas, oratorios, musical theatre, concerts, recitals, cabarets, and theatrical plays throughout the United States.
