Shakespeare in Performance

Venue Lennox Theatre
Dates 30 April - 01 May 2009

Shakespeare’s language, characters and themes are explored through both active participation and demonstration under the guidance of professional actors and a skilled director of Shakespeare.

Special attention is focused on performance techniques and the rhythm and power of Shakespeare’s words from a dramatic perspective. Characters and their relationships are examined both in their historical context and in the contemporary world to bring new relevance to the texts. Students will also investigate how the specific design of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre informed the staging and performing of his plays and how that translates to contemporary productions.

These workshops are designed to provide insight and to inspire an appreciation of Shakespeare’s plays for students in an interactive and entertaining way. The workshop is tailored to meet the specific needs of students of drama and the English curricula.
