We are delighted to welcome back Royal Shakespeare Company Director Owen Horsley, for this fantastic 3 day workshop!!

SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE

 

Owen says: This 3-day workshop looks at the theme of love in Shakespeare's plays. Over the course of this workshop we will examine 3 elements of love - Romance, Passion and Wit. We will study 3 separate scenes over the workshop and look at them in depth and provide a safe space for everyone to fully explore and be brave. We will approach the scenes through a number of exercises that cover language, rhetoric, movement, stakes, character and staging - all of which will give you new and varied ways to approach a scene in Shakespeare. Each scene will require something different from the actor so you will be able to work on the varied skills that are required for performing Shakespeare. There is no pressure to learn the text but as always the more familiar you are with the language the more in depth the work can go. 

 

We will focus on a collection of 2 hander scenes and one ensemble scene.

 

DAY ONE 10am-5pmRomance - We will explore a scene from Romeo and Juliet as well as speeches and text from other plays. 

DAY TWO 10am-5pm -  Wit - We will explore a scene from Much Ado about Nothing as well as speeches and text from other plays

DAY THREE 10am-5pm - Passion - We will explore a scene from A Midsummer Night's Dream as well as speeches and text from other plays.
