Our Work

Here is where we put our beliefs and our instincts into practice, to see just how well the practice supports the theory. From this body of work, we will contribute research papers and articles so that other practitioners can judge the effectiveness of the outcomes of our Project. 

This body of work has four distinct but interconnected standards; please click the links below to get more details.

 

Shakespeare's Bones

writing completely new works inspired directly and indirectly out of Shakespeare plays.

       Beyond Shakespeare

Creating fresh works that only indirectly come out of Shakespeare by taking impulses out of Shakespeare

All our performance work is conducted in the public arena by means of Theatre productions (stage, audio, video, written etc) and workshops carried out by AlternativeTheatre - please click here to go to the website.

Audio Plays

Going to the Theatre in Shakespeare's time was primarily an auditory experience; we are now exploring how our work can be best enjoyed through the medium of voice and sound. We will be conducting workshops to explore this potential, and as part of that, we will be looking at how our one-man Shakespeare-inspired stage plays can be re-presented in audio.
