Polo Cultural Gaivotas|Boavista
Rua das Gaivotas, 8
This 8 hour workshop facilitated by Candace van der Walt, spread over two weekend afternoons, is designed to get you confident and comfortable about performing Shakespeare. We aim to have fun while demystifying his text. We’ll do this by playing with voice, movement and words. Over the weekend we’ll explore scenes from his various works. As a group we’ll explore ways to connect with the text, each other and our audiences.
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)
