Dr Shakespeare-Love: or how I learned to lose the fear and love the Bard

This is a two-day full time workshop, exploring ways of bringing the text to life with confidence, clarity and commitment:
• how to read Shakespeare
• how to own the language
• how to reveal the character and the world of the play
• how to share that world with the audience
• making the scene move
• audition practice

Discover how the ‘rules of the game’ (Original Shakespeare Co) provide acting choices, how it is that Shakespeare’s sub-text is present within the text, why actors just love performing it, and how to make it possible for audiences young and old to ‘get’ it .
