Shakespeare’s Heartbeat

Shakespeare’s Heartbeat uses the heartbeat rhythm of Shakespeare's words and the physicality of his characters to engage with students on the autism spectrum, and also is effective across a constellation of abilities.

Shakespeare In Performance

Delving into Macbeth, Romeo & Juliet, Hamlet, Julius Caesar (and others) to support English and History curriculum, this is a dynamic way to bring the plays to life and make accessible the text, history, performance and cultural contexts. This is our longest residency which culminates in the performance of a play.

Scene Study

Students build courage and confidence in Shakespeare's world. One-to-three person scenes taken from your selected play, which will then be staged and presented to the class and/or school.

Stage Combat

Using Shakespeare's fight scenes, pulled from A Midsummer Nights Dream, Much Ado About Nothing, Macbeth, Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet (just to name a few), our combat directors instruct in basic swordplay and hand-to-hand illusions of violence to safely and effectively perform theatrical combat.

This is an on-your-feet class series that teaches safety and techniques, including Hand-to-Hand (unarmed fighting), Rapier and Dagger, Quarter Staff, Falls, Rolls and Partner Collaboration.

World of Shakespeare

Covering daily life in the 1500-1600’s, specific arts and cultural aspects of society, class systems, religion, Shakespeare’s biography and the world of theatre in Shakespeare’s time.
