Moving Through Shakespeare offers educators a “No Fear” approach to Shakespeare’s plays through Physical Theatre. Physical Theatre provides students with a kinesthetic approach to learning. It allows students to move through curriculum and digest the content into their muscle memory. From this workshop, you will be able to guide your students to discover emotions within the Shakespearean language, become invested in the characters, and challenge each other to discover creative ways to connect to and understand the story.

Teachers will be able to:

Identify Shakespeare emotions and connect them to everyday emotions

Learn and practice elements of Physical Theatre

Break down a scene from Shakespeare and create a tableau about it
