Shakespeare’s Original Practices – Miles Gregory
Shakespeare's plays are full of directorial clues and acting hints that bring his text to life. In this workshop, Miles Gregory will explore sections of text in detail, unlocking Shakespeare's intentions and using Elizabethan original practice staging techniques to bring the text to life. This workshop brings together textual work with simple and effective performance techniques that demonstrate the 'Shock of the Old' - the incredible power of Shakespeare's text when performed using the same techniques used by Shakespeare's own company four hundred years ago. These include work on cue scripts, verse and prose, formal and informal address, direct audience address, public and private dialogue and Elizabethan mise en scene.

Miles Gregory is the Artistic Director and Founder of Pop-up Globe. He has formerly held positions as Director of the Bristol Shakespeare Festival, Artistic Director and CEO of The Maltings Theatre, Berwick-upon-Tweed, Regional Producer (Bristol) for Shakespeare's Globe, London, and as Artistic Director of the British Touring Shakespeare Company. He has directed over twenty professional productions of Shakespeare around the world including seasons in London's West End, UK national tours and site-specific productions. He holds a Master of Fine Arts in Staging Shakespeare from Exeter University, and a PhD in Shakespeare in Performance from Bristol University.

Participants need not prepare any specific text but should dress for lively action.

Pop-up Globe Auckland is a full-scale working temporary replica of the second Globe Theatre originally built by Shakespeare and his company in 1614, the result of ground-breaking international academic research. With a steel frame ‘skinned’ in plywood the Pop-up Globe fuses cutting-edge scaffold technology with 400-year-old designs and superb contemporary performances to create an immersive 360 degree experience unlike any other.

Capacity is limited and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis, so book your tickets now. Please wear appropriate, comfortable clothing for the workshops.
