Digital Shakespeare Workshops

For schools and colleges (Key Stages 2 to 5)

Looking for an exciting new way to explore the wonders of Shakespeare with your class?

Bring them over to QUAD to take part in a fun interactive workshop that combines energetic live performance with dazzling digital art to engage all participants with both classical text and current technology.

You and your class will work with 1623, QUAD's award-winning resident theatre company, in a session that uses drama games to explore vibrant characters and inspirational language in a key scene from:

• A Midsummer Night’s Dream, for Key Stages 2 and 3

• A Shakespeare play of your choice, linked to your current English and/or Drama syllabus, at Key Stages 4 and 5

Once you've explored the scene with 1623, you and your class will work with a QUAD digital artist to generate a digital environment based on Shakespeare's imagery in the scene. Then the class will perform the scene in the environment that they have created.

Workshop length = 3 hours (half day) Maximum class size = 30 Costs: £300
