This workshop aims to introduce kids to the basics of theatre and performance through the exciting world of Shakespeare, and to make his timeless stories accessible. The stories will be explored in simple prose language, and the participants will attempt to find the essence of a few of his main stories and their various situations. Through improvisations in both story-telling and performance, the participants will try to make Shakespeare’s stories relevant to themselves in this day & age. The workshop will have individual exercises, as well as ensemble improvisations, with a focus on creating effectively as a group. From playing characters to becoming story-tellers, the participants will understand how to hold an audience’s attention, how to create imaginative worlds on stage, and how to share the joys and tensions of a good story universally. On the final day parents will have an experimental session on the floor with kids
doing some of the workshop games that the kids have done over the week.
