Shakespeare Seminars

In this interactive seminar, two Bell Shakespeare Teaching Artists will combine rich critical analysis with active explorations of Shakespeare’s text. Best suited to senior students in Year 11-12 who are advanced in their study of a play, and need expert analysis to prepare for senior exams.

Each session will cover critical analysis, literary techniques, multiple readings, thematic discussion, character analysis and personal response. A handful of key scenes and soliloquies are performed by the Teaching Artists, with students taking over the role of director to influence meaning. A unique opportunity for senior students to meaningfully engage with Shakespeare’s plays, and work with professional artists.
