Join ASC actors for an afternoon of fun playing with Shakespeare and Improvisation, facilitated by Carly Ellis. To get you thinking about Shakespeare the session will begin with a short performance by Elizabeth Brennan (Twelfth Night) and Andrew Cullimore (Romeo & Juliet) of the Bottom and Titania scene from A Midsummer Night’s Dream where you will become the Fairies. Then, Carly Ellis (Twelfth Night) will facilitate an Improvised Shakespeare workshop for adults (16+) before we all head to Hamlet – Under the Stars, in Melbourne Royal Botanic Gardens. Under 18’s must have parental consent. Work on status, spontaneity and narrative skills, whilst having a whole lot of fun with ASC actors in Melbourne CBD.
Please come with a monologue/sonnet memorised. Remember:
Thou = You
Thee = You
The m’re Shakespeare thee knoweth the easi’r ’twill beest.
Improvised Shakespeare runs from 2:30 – 5:30pm at The Greek Centre and Hamlet starts at 8:30pm in Royal Botanic Gardens.
