Experience Opportunity

Shakespeare In A Week (On Zoom With Owen Horsley)

Monday 1 - 5 November. 2pm - 5pm daily via Zoom.

Royal Shakespeare Company Director and Bard City AD Owen Horsley is back with 'Shakespeare In A Week'. After 6 successful SIAW online workshops we have decided to come back with Shakespeare's masterpiece 'Hamlet'. As with out previous Zoom processes (inc. 'Richard II', 'MSND', 'Cymbeline', 'Titus Andronicus', 'Much Ado About Nothing' and 'R&J') it will be an involved and practical workshop that not only tackles the play within a week but also provides an approach to classical text that will build your confidence and flex your acting muscles. The focus of this week will be verse, language, storytelling and ensemble work and we will explore the play in a way that feels collective and collaborative. The ethos behind all our 'Shakespeare In A Week' workshops in "connection not perfection" so the focus will always be on the process rather than product. This is an opportunity to be brave, discuss fears about classical work, relish the language of Shakespeare and take inspiration from each other...
