Playing the roles of power

Theatre Workshop

Art School Thessaloniki

 

December 2016


Shakespeare’s characters have titles, grades and rank in the hierarchy. Each of them has to play a proper role in the drama of monarchy. They behave according to their office and follow protocols in order to communicate.

The participants explore the rules that apply to the Elizabethan era, the problems of power and dominion, class and order, and the rights of citizens in Shakespeare’s lifetime.
