SHAKESPEARE & IMPROVISATION COURSE
We are running a Shakespeare and Improvisation Course 18-22 February in London.
Course Fees = £345 inclusive of a tour around Shakespeare's Globe. Theatre.
This acting course aims to inspire students to use Shakespeare’s language with assurance and originality. The themes and meaning of his work are explored through voice and physicality.
A variety of texts will be used but students are also encouraged to bring a monologue that they would like to work on.
Improvisation is a useful tool to bring the actors imagination alive and helps us to respond to situations, both real and imagined, with confidence and vigour. Using improvisation around Shakespeare's texts inspires a deeper understanding of his ideas. makes them relevant to today's audiences, and brings truth to your performance.
Classes will take place in our rehearsal rooms.
