A Carnival of Errors: Part of Shakespeare Nation


This event has passed.

Following on from the success of the first two years of Shakespeare Nation run in collaboration with the Royal Shakespeare Company, we are thrilled to invite you to a day full of creative workshops to launch the third year of this magnificent project. This year the project will be based around Shakespeare’s farcical The Comedy of Errors. In year three of Shakespeare Nation, we have an ambition to work with communities, neighbourhoods and groups throughout the region to co-create a series of mini productions inspired by The Comedy of Errors and infused with stories participants want to tell.

Come along to Norwich Theatre on Tuesday 9 November to hear more about the project and take part in a day full of creative activities led by the Royal Shakespeare Company and various industry professionals. The creative workshops will explore a variety of performance styles and skills aimed to inspire possibilities for the co-productions as part of the project.

This is open to everybody including past and potential participants, whether you love Shakespeare’s work or it terrifies you. Likewise, you can either be a seasoned professional or have no theatre making experience at all. We are particularly keen at encouraging those that are new to the world of theatre and performing arts to come along and give it a go. On top of that, you don’t need to be a performer, you may also want to get involved in backstage roles!

9.30-11.30am | Workshop | Sound and the Performer

This workshop explores the relationship between the performer and sound. Using immersive sound design and physical theatre exercises, participants will discover how sound can enhance or change the shape of performance.

In this workshop, participants will explore the relationship dynamics between master and servant and how to effectively and humorously use slapstick style stage fighting within performance

Working alongside a professional animator and theatre maker, participants on this workshop will enter the world of digital performance and explore the possibilities of performing and interacting with projections.
