Continuing Professional Development:
Shakespeare and Sexuality

This event has now passed.
Visit our What's On to see our current and upcoming events.

Following our hugely successful Shakespeare and Women and Anti-Racist Shakespeare sessions, this dynamic and exciting new development opportunity explores Shakespeare and Sexuality.

This session will equip teachers with both academic and practical tools to analyse the moments where Shakespeare’s works illuminate the queer culture of his own time, as well as revealing how ‘queering’ the performance of Shakespeare’s plays can unlock further meaning and facilitate LGBTQIA+ inclusive discussions in the classroom.

Using practical techniques direct from our rehearsal rooms and references to current research relating to the plays in their original and contemporary contexts, teachers will uncover the queer potential in Shakespeare and the possibilities and provocative discussions that can arise from looking at Shakespeare through an other-than-heteronormative lens.
