Opera Factory Workshop: Acting

According to Shakespeare, “All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts” (As You Like It).

Thanks to Renewal SA and City of Port Adelaide Enfield, you can have some fun with improvised theatre games and practising Shakespeare’s famous love and insult quotes. No previous experience necessary!

This free 2-hour workshop directed by Nicholas Cannon will involve a lot of moving around to explore theatrical physicality, body awareness and creating physical characters.

Registrations are essential. See below for more details.
