Masterclass

SHAKESPEARE’S FIRST FOLIO

 

presented by Rodney Cottier

Head of the Drama School, London Academy of Dramatic Arts

 

Rodney Cottier’s Shakespeare workshop takes students through a lively history of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre; explores questions of Elizabethan staging in contemporary performance; delves into Shakespeare’s First Folio; and uses these discussions to approach Shakespeare’s text by working select scenes from the complete plays, with special attention to the opening of King Lear.

This masterclass is interactive, stimulating, and a great deal of fun!  It is 3 hours and is geared to all levels of experience, with something in it for everyone – from those just starting out to old pros.  All are welcome, and the more who attend, the merrier.
