The Studio at Shakespeare’s Globe (2021)

Courses for professional actors

  29 JanUARY – 16 mARCH 2021           AT HOME

Professional actors registered with The Studio can attend courses and workshops online and onsite. Register to book and to be the first to hear about future courses.

Workshops and courses are taught by our talented Globe Faculty who have extensive experience of working in our two theatres. Through this programme, their work is shared with the creative community in a respectful, playful and supportive space.

In 2020, we discovered that Globe Performance Practice has a vital life online, as well as in person, connecting us with actors all over the world. The absence of body language when working online means you use your words in a more efficient way, meaning these courses are full of rich and energised text work.

These events are suitable for all actors, whether you have previously worked or trained at the Globe or not, and regardless of your experience with classical texts. You will either find the opportunity to lose the fear of working with Shakespeare, or to look at familiar texts through a new lens.

“Players in the Globe have just that – playfulness, ready to respond to what comes their way. It is a space that changes with the weather and the time of day, and its players need to be as alive as the space”

– Joanne Howarth. Globe Faculty, Actor and Director
