“Players in the Globe have just that – playfulness, ready to respond to what comes their way. It is a space that changes with the weather and the time of day, and its players need to be as alive as the space”

– Joanne Howarth. Globe Faculty, Actor and Director.

Bring the Globe into your home with this rigorous introduction to the principles of performance at the Globe. Discover what it means to be ‘as alive as the space’ by exploring the relationship between body, text and space. Even when that space is your living room or kitchen.

Each online workshop will start with a 30-minute virtual tour of the Globe Theatre, led by our expert Globe faculty, followed by 90 minutes of collaborative and playful exercises.

This workshop will focus on scenes from Hamlet – we recommend you read or re-read the play, ahead of the workshop, and we will send you some extracts in advance to become familiar with.


Your ticket is valid for one individual to join the online workshop on one device.

You cannot book this workshop unless you have registered with The Studio at Shakespeare’s Globe and the ticket must be booked by the individual who will be participating in the workshop.

You will be sent a pre-visit email one week before the event with details of the texts to be familiar with (they do not need to be memorised). If you have booked within a week of the event, this email will be sent the day after your booking.

A second pre-visit email with a unique link and joining instructions will be sent to you the day of the event. You will need access to a reliable internet connection and to be able to join a Zoom meeting.
