Acting Shakespeare (DRA3073)

30 credits

Acting Shakespeare will introduce you to contemporary approaches to acting Shakespeare through the practical exploration of a range of his plays. The module weaves theory and practice throughout a series of seminar/laboratory/workshop sessions where we interrogate current scholarship about how to perform Shakespeare and test it out in practice. You will work on a monologue, series of short scenes and a final group performance. Come prepared to read, think, learn lines and challenge yourself.

Incoming international students and Exeter students from other disciplines welcome, subject to availability. Previous experience in drama, performance or theatre studies and practical experience is strongly recommended.
