Playing the Globe workshops run throughout the year and can be considered as an introduction to the work of The Studio. Workshops will focus on approaches to performing in the Globe space, each with a focus on one particular text.
Actors will have the chance to explore the unique actor-audience relationship in the amphitheatre and how this impacts upon our understanding of Shakespeare’s texts. We will work collaboratively to explore in practical ways the playing conditions of this unique space and how to account for its acoustics, sight lines and stage features.
