The Performance Grid – Stuart Devenie
Actors require an understanding of ‘ being present’ in any performance they give. With Shakespeare’ s texts, actors must consider that sense of immediacy and connection to others in a wide range of relationships, including private moments, public moments and shifts within the two. Using Stuart’ s concept of a “performance grid”, this workshop looks at ways to authentically connect with other actors and the audience, in order to bring Shakespeare’ s text into sharp focus for the performer.

Stuart Devenie’ s theatrical and television career has spanned three decades, having played leads in several well loved plays and television dramas.

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.
