In this seminar, explore the work of Shakespeare and why it continues to fascinate us and stay relevant over 400 years later. Deconstruct his prose and poetry as you delve into his famous works, using the idyllic town of Oxford and the surrounding countryside as inspiration. Explore Shakespeare’s haunts, from the tavern at the Oxford Inn to St. John’s College, where he performed frequently. This is also a theatre seminar, with a wide variety of short workshops in skills such as gesture and voice, improv, timing, and stage combat. Act in and produce a series of Shakespearean scenes fitted to contemporary tastes.
