We've been running workshops for over 20 years with diverse groups of actors, writers, creatives and communities, focusing on theatre craft and performance. Throughout this time, we've always wanted people to learn from each other (not just us!), discuss their interpretations, bring their own insights and experiences to the fore, and bounce around ideas to create something brilliant.
Our AlternativeShakespeare workshops use the world of the bard as our starting point, analysing and mining his works to glean new insights and understanding.
Our workshops are theatre for all, and Shakespeare for all - not just actors! We want to make Shakespeare more accessible for everyone who wants to learn more or create something of their own, regardless of background or experience.
