My Voice Entering Shakespeare's World

I have chosen the play “Othello,” Act IV. II. 175-184. The character I play is Desdemona.

What I learned from being this character was how to speak, how to pace, and what my tone should sound like in this particular character’s way. There is a special way this character speaks. Because of this character’s personality and all the things that make this character who she is, Shakespeare uses words that identify with that.

The tone of your voice, the volume, and your pace all has to be in a particular way to make it seem like you are the actual character. So with all of that in mind, it took many rewinds and re-dos to try to reach that expectation.
