Weekend Workshop|PLAYING SHAKESPEARE
14-15 April, 2018
Polo Cultural Gaivotas|Boavista
Rua das Gaivotas, 8
This 8 hour workshop facilitated by Candace van der Walt, spread over two weekend afternoons, was designed to get participants confident and comfortable about performing Shakespeare. We had a lot of fun while demystifying the texts. We were able to play with voice, movement and words and explore scenes from various Shakespeare plays such as Julius Caesar, The Tempest and Twelfth Night.
BRUTUS You are my true and honourable wife,
As dear to me as are the ruddy drops, that visit my sad heart.
PORTIA If this were true, then should I know this secret.
(Julius Caesar, Act 2 Scene 2)
“I long to hear the story of your life, which must take the ear strangely.”
(The Tempest, Act 5 Scene 1)
