His two day workshop will include work on -
and warm up scenes from #RomeoandJuliet #Macbeth #AMidsummerNight'sDream
Below is a statement of how he proposes to work with the participants during his two sessions -
Using techniques learnt from my time on the Globe stages; the large outdoor, and the candle lit indoor - both spaces of shared light, making the audience a close and ever-present character in the work, I will introduce the participants to the way in which I approach the text and characters of Shakespeare. Using fast paced, instinctive approaches to try and connect the actors to their true creative energies. Trusting the attack and flow of the text and making sure our hearts and bodies are being activated. Finding the joy and the creative freedom which Shakespeare affords us. I treat the verse and rhythm with great respect and will demonstrate how it can add richness and depth to the work. We shall, in our time together, gain ownership and confidence in the words and lives of the play.
