03 Jul Improvised Shakespeare Workshop
Heroes and villains. Fairies, princesses and kings. Come spend a day improvising in the style of Shakespeare. Whether you know every single play backwards, or hated it at school, it doesn’t matter. You will be guided in creating imagery and metaphor and working with some of the most common character and situation types in Shakespeare.
I studied Shakespeare both at UCL and the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, but thought it was something I had left behind until I accidentally trying putting it with improv. It just turns out to work amazingly well. It raises the stakes, heightens the listening and makes you language more original and dynamic. It’s also a hell of a lot easier than you think. Come try it!
Workshop leader Jules Munns is the director of Impromptu Shakespeare, featuring some of the most exciting improvisers on the circuit today. He is also one of the artistic directors of the Nursery and the founder of the Slapdash International Festival of Improvisation. He performs with the Maydays, Ten Thousand Million Love Stories and Silly String Theory.
