About the event
Launched over 50 years ago, and investigating Shakespeare from an actor's point of view, it is designed to cater for a wide range of abilities and experiences, from complete beginners to seasoned professionals.
The comprehensive curriculum embraces aspects of RADA's core teaching, combining rehearsal of text with classes in essential skills.
You will work in a ‘company’ with a maximum of 14 people. Each company has a professional director, with whom you will undertake a detailed scene study on one or more of Shakespeare's plays, culminating in an informal sharing with another group. You will have classes in dance, clown, mask, physical performance, stage fighting, the basics of Shakespeare acting, and a masterclass conducted by a distinguished practitioner.
During the course, you will work with students from a second company for your classes in voice, sonnets, monologues, singing and Alexander Technique. There will be informal sharings of clown work, sonnets and monologues. All companies are structured so that each student has the best possible chance of making progress at the most appropriate pace.
This course takes place 4 days per week for week 1 (Wednesday to Saturday), and 5 days per week for weeks 2–4 (Monday to Friday).
