Sharpen Up The ShakespeareMay 16th, 2018 | Posted by in ******** Uncategorized
This session we focused on developing Scene 1 and building our Shakespeare characters. I enjoyed the warm up game we played, led by another member of the group, in which we reacted to movements and actions in the way our characters would. I enjoyed it because it was inclusive and funny, but also a bit challenging because I had to think on my feet and manage to stay in character without corpsing.
In my group, we worked around the idea of setting the scene with all the Shakespearean characters featuring and revealing their problems. I felt personally, like I had a clear mind-set of what I needed to say and do and learnt a lot about Shakespeare and some context on Richard III.
