Many parts of Shakespeare are not as universal as we’re told. But the human heartbeat at the centre of his words is. It changes pace, skips a beat, and thuds out a rhythm just like ours, and just like the characters’ of his plays.
Join director, actor, and Shakespeare performance specialist CJ Turner-McMullan to unpack, play with, and better understand the secrets hiding in Shakespeare’s iambic pentameter. Thinking about breath, vocal tone, pace, and pitch, we’ll explore different ways of discovering and performing the meaning behind his words.
This practical workshop for actors, directors, and well… anyone really, professional or not, will help you find the confidence and creativity to make Shakespeare’s words your own.
Saturday 30th July, 11am-1pm. For ages 18+.
Tickets £15, or £10 when purchased with a ticket to see As You Like It at Trowbridge Town Hall on Thursday 28th July. More information about the show can be found here.
