- Shakespeare Alive

Hamlet Workshop Article: Original Photo by Scott Wishart“In ‘The Celtic Element in Literature’, W.B. Yeats talks about the rituals of the ancient Celts, who waved their hands and murmured and danced ‘until they felt their souls overtopping the moon’, implying boldly that it is possible for humans to combine language and movement for the expansion of personal energy.”
- Shakespeare Set Free, Washington Square Press 1994.

The FAIR PLAY WORKS Shakespeare Workshops develop an appreciation and deeper understanding of Shakespeare through the mediums of drama and dance. The students warm up with a series of movement and theatre exercises and work towards creating and performing original interpretations of adapted Shakespearean scenes.
