Tips and tricks to understand and perform Shakespeare
Workshop Focus: Understanding Shakespeare / Creativity / Teamwork
60 mins and 90 mins options
This workshop focuses on introducing students to some Shakespearean text and giving them tools to play with it and make it their own.
We begin by looking at Shakespearean insults and explore tricks we can use as performers to ensure the audience understands this old-English.
We use playful exercises and games to explore how we can use our voice as English speakers and performers to portray certain messages. Together we look at the power of body language and how movements need to be adapted for the stage.
The workshops culminates in the students creating their own Shakespearean-style scene.
Our Shakespeare workshops have been designed by our founder, Abbie Moore. Abbie has been a guest speaker at Shakespearia Theatre Festival in Russia and has co-designed and delivered workshops for the world's largest youth drama festival, the Shakespeare Schools Festival.

theatre or these kind of activities!"
