THE ESSENCE 3 DAY COURSE
In a beautiful and intimate countryside setting let’s take Shakespeare to the next level. Surrounded by the stunning vista of Welsh hills this is an ideal opportunity to let Shakespeare’s language live in natural surroundings. Explore Shakespeare’s plays in their natural environment.
In a small group this 3 day workshop intensifies the training and becomes more ‘bespoke.’ Tailoring characters to actors and working closely with the individual voice and the ‘acting tool box’.
Discover the essence of acting Shakespeare and discover Elemental Shakespeare.
"Every time I open my mouth to do one of my speeches, I feel alive like I never have while acting before in my life. It's a real pumping feeling, and as opposed to being an actor saying the speech, I AM the character. It's a really beautiful feeling."
There will be work inside and in the local countryside as nature influenced so much of Shakespeare's writing.
"Michael took me to a myriad of outstanding locations in the depths of nature, at these locations Michael asked me to perform my speeches in multiple different ways.
I can't really explain the benefit of these exercises, it's something you have to feel for yourself."
Arriving on Friday or Tuesday afternoon we will meet over tea and cake in the fabulous lodges at Bryn Tanat Hall.
Beginning that evening after dinner over the next few days we will work in an intensive way,
All meals and drinks are included and in addition to luxurious en suite accommodation there is a hot tub attached to each lodge.
I will take you out into the surrounding countryside to find the heart in your voice.
