Rehearsing Shakespeare: Character and Narrative

"The art of rehearsal is to capture moments of potential change, when the direction of life hangs in the balance, when a character might behave or react in an unexpected way."

Further to his previous blog on character and language, here our Associate Director Bill Alexander discusses character and Narrative. #actors #actorslife #performingarts #rehearsalprocess #ShareYourShakespeare @RSC

"Each one of these blogs is just a beginning, a simple and brief laying out of thoughts before a more detailed exploration of the issues at a later date. When this sequence is complete I will revisit each one and expand it to 3 or 4 times the length, illustrating key points from various productions of my own".
