Shakespeare explore:create:express

Explore possible 21st Century themes by researching speeches/lines/scenes from Shakespeare, out of context from their source plays, and use them as our source material to form Themes.
Create lessons, using the identified source material, to discover what we can learn about the Themes, and way of working, of Shakespeare's work. Ideas, feelings, thoughts that come out of our workshops/discussions are worked through, gradually these then get developed in a way that connects with people's own experiences.
Express a range of outcomes that are appropriate for people attending the session; Powerpoint presentations, ideas for follow-up workshops, techniques for people to practice, new works inspired by our efforts etc. This might also include new collaborative or individual pieces - the process determines all.

This is what we do. If you think this might be of interest, either as a participant or as an observer, please click here.
