On the last day, an open lesson will be held for parents and siblings/ best friends. Attendance and  workshop fees will vary according to the size of the venue.

Here are the workshop options:

a) The Winter’s Tale (Shakespeare): drama activities such as ‘whoosh’, and  improvisation covering essential scenes and focussing on themes like jealousy and honesty. Whole group and small group work. writing activities included. Come and join the fun!

b) ‘Harry Potter Magic’, (based on JRR Rowlings novels, but not using the script): Students are guided to write their own script through drama activities and improvisation. N.B: This is NOT a workshop on how to learn magic trics, but is merely drama!

c) ‘Fairytales Update’: Students re-invent fairytales through drama activities and improvisation in small groups, sharing with the larger group. Each group may choose their own fairytale to re-write!

 

Zoom workshops for teenagers and adults:

For Zoom sessions, it’s best to choose one or two scenes from a play, such as:

Here are the Zoom workshop options:

b) The Merchant of Venice: Act 1.3;

c) ‘Fairytales Update’: Students re-invent fairytales through drama activities and improvisation in small groups, sharing with the larger group. Each group may choose their own fairytale to re-write!

  • Explore the atmosphere, character motivation and basic plot of the scenes or play as well as the rhythm of Shakespeare’s language, and why this is significant to understanding the characters.
  • Zoom workshops can be conducted in Dutch, but will use original text (in bite-size, easy portions). No need to have any prior knowledge of Shakespeare.
