Typically, upon completion of this module a student should be able:
- To demonstrate an intelligent awareness of the challenges which a Shakespeare text offers in the context of performance, directed towards primary or secondary school students.
- To participate in the creation of the public performance of the text, using appropriate acting, design or stage-management skills
- To realise and organise the conceptual procedures appropriate for the creation and presentation of educational workshops on the text.
Students will work on the Schools' Shakespeare project at Aberystwyth Arts Centre. An experienced director and design tutor will lead the project. During the workshops, rehearsals and preparatory sessions, students will consider the challenges of interpreting the text chosen and devise and present appropriate workshops for the young audiences attending the project. They will also fulfill their assignment as an actor, designer or stage-manager. After the workshops and performances are completed there will be a post-production discussion, during which students will be encouraged to analyse the process experienced and assess their personal contribution to the project.
