Workshop facilitators: Priscilla Bergey and Grace Evangeline Holme
My advanced English course (Leistungskurs Englisch) and I took part in a workshop on William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet in October 2019. We had just started to read the play in class and my students were still a little bit intimidated by Shakespeare… We were so lucky to have Grace as the facilitator of this workshop. Right from the beginning, she knew exactly how to approach my students and how to get them interested and engaged in the activities… Almost without realizing, they learned about iambic pentameter, the main characters, the plot and the leitmotifs of this famous play. I was amazed at the results. All of my students – the shy ones, the loud ones, the ones who excel at English as well as the ones having a hard time with Shakespeare – showed outstanding performances. I can only thank Grace for this inspiring experience! —– Anita Wulf, MindenTo book a workshop or request additional information, please contact Grace Evangeline Holme HERE
We offer four basic types of workshops: Shakespeare, Wandertag, Theme and Open:
We offer workshops on all of Shakespeare’s plays and sonnets! If your class is in the process of studying a particular work of Shakespeare, these workshops are designed to deepen students’ knowledge and understanding of the text by exploring it actively through performance. For students who are completely new to Shakespeare, we also offer an Introduction to Shakespeare workshop.
- Introduction to Shakespeare
- Romeo & Juliet
- A Midsummer Night’s Dream
- Twelfth Night
- Shakespeare’s Sonnets
If your class is studying a Shakespeare play that is not listed above, please do not hesitate to get in touch. We are happy to arrange workshops on any of Shakespeare’s works.
The main focus of these workshops is making students feel relaxed and comfortable in speaking English. Your class will enjoy fun and effective theater games, improvisations, scene work and storytelling. The students will benefit from participating in confidence boosting exercises and from creating their own original performances. Suitable for students with basic English skills, as well as advanced.
In our theme workshops we work closely with you, the teacher, in the planning, focusing on issues that can be made more engaging through theater games, role-play and improvisations.
There are three popular themes to choose from:
• Visions of the Future
• The Individual in Society
• National and Cultural Identity
In addition to our student workshops, we also offer sessions for all kinds of groups. Whether it be for a corporate event, staff outing or international exchange project, fun icebreakers and improv games make these workshops an excellent way to support healthy group dynamics, improve communication skills and foster team building. The duration of these workshops may be 3-4 hours long depending on the needs of the group.
