Upcoming Workshops


Speak the Speech– Shakespeare’s Monologues:

We will develop your presence through the prism of Patsy Rodenburg’s Three Circles of Energy™

We will work on body, breath, voice, range and speech in order to meet each word fully physically, intellectually and emotionally in readiness for the text to work us. You will get to choose from a selection of Shakespeare’s monologues for this workshop.


The play is the thing – preparation and rehearsal in Second Circle™

Get ready to ride a roller coaster of heightened speech and emotion that will test and hone your skills as we enter the world of Sophocles’ Greek Tragedy in ensemble in preparation to speak Oedipus Rex in its entirety.

Building on the scaffold built in Day 1, this day’s work will help you develop your ability to read and perform heightened speech under the intense pressure required to maintain rhythm and tempo, ensemble play, chorus work and sight reading all while remaining in Second Circle™ physically, vocally, intellectually and emotionally in order to play the text as written and meet the play fully in preparation to rehearse.
