Shakespeare in our lives

Shakespeare has dominated English literature for over four centuries. In this workshop we'll discover why, and learn about ourselves in the process. Using selected excerpts from Shakespeare's writings, we will dive into his body of work, and return with useful and fascinating pearls of wisdom from the man who very nearly rewrote the entire English language.
We will acquire the basic tools of speaking and understanding Shakespearean texts, and practice performing them. Participants will finish this workshop having practiced their presentational skills, worked on communication, and acquired a deeper understanding of Shakespeare. Because: if you can do Shakespeare, you can do anything.
In this three-hour workshop, you will:

  • Learn how to read Shakespeare, making him easily accessible to all
  • Work the texts, gaining all their wisdom and enhancing your understanding of human interaction
  • Perform them, enhancing your presentational abilities
  • Make these understandings practicable in daily life
