Barking Gecko Theatre’s Artistic Director Matt Edgerton has created this two-hour interactive session, combining compelling staging of key scenes from the play with detailed analysis of the language, historical context, performance history and big themes in the play.
A facilitator and a team of actors take students through the essential passages of the play, staging scenes with a combination of great respect for the text and an entertaining and inventive performance style. With a central focus on interpretive choices, the actors and facilitator will discuss characters, language forms, theatrical challenges and the specific demands of Shakespeare on the performer.
Living Lectures are dense, fast-paced and fun, leaving you and your students with a wealth of information and inspiration to unpack in the following weeks. Students experience a rich learning environment and an inspiring introduction to Shakespeare’s language and themes.
