The Art of Historical Interpretation Workshop With Nathan M. Richardson

By | August 14, 2022

THE ART OF HISTORICAL INTERPRETATION – Nathan M. Richardson shares his acclaimed interpretation of Frederick Douglass in this three part performance / workshop that engages students through demonstration, dialogue and discussion with key aspects of historical interpretation and re-enactments. Students will interact with both the historical character and the interpreter/understudy to learn his creative process of bringing a character to life. Students will leave with a greater understanding of the creative and business sides of the craft. (Our goal is to help active storytellers tell more inclusive narratives and to grow the pool of enactors telling the history of Native, African and other people of color.)
