Shakespeare and Laban Workshop

  • Sunday 15 December
  • 11am-5pm
  • Bookings: here

Are you an actor who loves to move, or a dancer looking to find your voice? Spend a day exploring the creative potential of the body and voice and the dynamic potential of Shakespeare’s text, in an open and inclusive environment for actors and dancers alike. Theatre director, actor trainer and author of Shakespeare in Action Jaq Bessell, and dancer, choreographer and movement director Laura Weston are bringing their workshop “Shakespeare and Laban” to London.

Over the last 6 years Jaq and Laura have developed a collaborative and innovative practice using Rudolf von Laban’s framework for movement analysis to explore the creative and expressive possibilities of Shakespeare’s text. Their work together liberates dancers and actors from the boundaries of their technique and discipline, and teaches practical methods to embody Shakespeare’s verse in rehearsal and performance.

The workshop is physically demanding, and suitable for dancers, actors and movement practitioners with at least 3 years of training or equivalent experience. Spaces are strictly limited, so booking early is advised, to avoid disappointment.

This workshop is not to be missed!
