   – Communicate effectively with actors, to ensure you get the best out of them in performance

2) MASTERCLASS IN DIRECTING SHAKESPEARE & CLASSICAL THEATRE

Have you always longed to take on one of the great classical plays, but feel inhibited by the language, history or formal verse of a classic? Fear not! Once you know what to look for, you can quickly become the master of a script, whether it’s Shakespearean verse, Restoration comedy or 19th century Russian drama.

 

In this workshop, you’ll learn how to:

   – Decipher historical language, so you fully understand the text of your chosen script
  – ‘Read between the lines’ and interpret the key signals and acting codes that are often embedded in the classics
  – Master the theory of performing verse or historic language, so you can coach your actors and help them to      

     make their classical speeches sound natural and authentic
  – Bring the lines to life, so you make a classical text relevant, exciting and accessible to a modern-day audience
