 Shakespeare with Young People

‘This is a fantastic course. It's been fun and challenging at the same time but always keeps you motivated.’

Sabrina Poole

The course has helped me grow as a performer but also as a person. Working in a group as well as individually to high expectations has pushed me to limits I didn't think I could achieve. I have thoroughly enjoyed it and would really recommend it anybody who loves a challenge.’ 

Lauren Watts

The workshop will present ideas to create fast paced, dynamic realisations using drama, music and dance with young people. We will develop work concerned with answering the questions:-

         - Story and dance theatre techniques to make the plot clear

How do we speak the verse?
         - Ways into speaking the verse through physicalisation

How can we create inventive soundscapes and music for the play?
         - Ways of creating original music and/or sourcing relevant popular tunes

How do we stage the extracts to make meaning clear?
         - How can proxemics be used to establish situation and character

How do we establish character and motivation?
        - The use of status to reveal relationships

Do we need a concept?
       - Ideas for unifying the different groups of characters

How can we organise such a large cast?
       - Ideas for scheduling a production

How do we play the comedy?
      -Is it funny?
