Checking In

Just checking in...Christmas I spent with some MFA American students who didn't go home. New Years was spent eating authentic Italian food my classmate made, hundreds of people in central London, watching fireworks, good music, great friends and plenty of fun. School has started back-up, and we are working on Shakespeare. I am learning how to render Shakespeare's language the way he intended. My group is working on "Macbeth," and I am playing Lady Macduff. To find some inspiration, we headed to Lewes castle, and hiked 6 miles to Glind through the most amazing hills. I also went to a beach and saw the Atlantic ocean for the first time. Did I mention that I rode a train for the first time too:) In our venture into Shakespeare we have had two invaluable workshops, one was all about how to translate the text. The other was taught by this man Bruce who goes into prisons all over the world, and gathers prisoners to perform a Shakespeare play. He even has them write a sonnet. While we enter into Shakespeare's world we are preparing for Living History. We will be living a week in 1649, as people from the time period: voice, costumes, work and all.

I love drama school!!!!!!
Big news-
After some hard thought, research and gathering advice from my mentors; I have decided to graduate early. This means that I will forgo the MFA, and graduate 2014 with a MA. The program that I am in has made me confident that I am ready to go back to work. Plus, it will save me $39,000.
I thank everyone so much for their support, and I am very blessed to have such amazing people in my life.

Thank-you so much,
Kat Payseno
