Our multi-modal package of high quality online higher education resources consists of curated live sessions and selected pre-recorded material, all delivered by our scholars, faculty and artists.

In our teaching, we encourage students to explore the relationship between the audience, actor and architecture, and think about how this impacts on our understanding of Shakespeare’s texts. What we call ‘Globe Performance Practice’ has a vital life online as well as in person.

We will work with you to weave online content into the arc of your module – whether it has a performance, literary, social or historical focus. Alternatively, we can curate a standalone course or module for your students. We can deliver either through your VLE (Virtual Learning Environment) or through our own platforms.

BOOKING INFORMATION

Sessions are priced between £210 and £550.

Pricing variations take into account student numbers, the form of the material chosen, levels of interactivity and delivery location.

Discounted packages are available for multi session courses.

FILMED IN THE SAM WANAMAKER PLAYHOUSE

SHAKESPEARE AND THE MOVE INDOORS

Shakespeare wrote for the candlelit Blackfriars playhouse as well as the Globe. Discover a long heritage of indoor performance with Dr Will Tosh.

LIGHTING IN THE INDOOR PLAYHOUSE

Candlelight comes in many forms, and we look at effects created by torches, tapers, lanterns and candelabra. Discover how Early Modern writers altered their craft for indoor performances, and how candles changed the theatre form.

STAGING THE TEMPEST INDOORS

Shakespeare’s great late play was written for performance in the indoor Blackfriars playhouse. What does it mean to think about a play in the context of its early performance space, and what prompts for modern staging decisions might lie within the text?

INDOOR PERFORMANCE PRACTICE

Since the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse opened in 2014, Globe artists have developed specific skills for acting indoors and under candle light. Learn how an awareness of indoor theatricality can expand our understanding of works including The Tempest and The Winter’s Tale.

IN CONVERSATION WITH MICHELLE TERRY – STAGING LADY MACBETH INDOORS

Shakespeare’s Globe artistic director Michelle Terry played Lady Macbeth in an acclaimed production directed by Rob Hastie in 2018. Here, she discusses this landmark production’s use of space, candlelight, and darkness.

DIRECTING IN THE SAM WANAMAKER PLAYHOUSE

Dominic Dromgoole (former Artistic Director of Shakespeare’s Globe) and Blanche McIntyre discuss the challenges and opportunities presented when working with Shakespeare’s texts in an archetypal Jacobean theatre.

FILMED IN THE GLOBE THEATRE

GLOBE PERFORMANCE PRACTICE

What are the particular skills needed to perform at the Globe, in the open air in front of sixteen hundred people? Learn how to give shape and texture to a performance and make Shakespeare’s words impactful in the 21st century using the same tools as early modern actors: a body and a voice.

ORIGINAL PRACTICES

Shakespeare’s Globe artists Mark Rylance, Claire van Kampen, Jenni Tiramani and Tim Carroll developed an artistic approach that utilised rigorously historical techniques in music, clothing and comportment. Learn more about Original Practices with a performer who worked with this original team.

ACTING AT THE GLOBE

What is ‘Globe style’ performance? Is there such a thing? Discover how to bring Shakespeare’s text to life by thinking about the unique relationship between actor and audience that his plays require.
