Unearthing Shakespeare : Embodied Performance and the Globe (Paperback) (Valerie Clayman Pye)
about this item
What can the Globe Theatre tell us about performing Shakespeare?
Unearthing Shakespeare is the first book to consider what the Globe, today’s replica of Shakespeare’s theatre, can contribute to a practical understanding of Shakespeare’s plays. Valerie Clayman Pye reconsiders the material evidence of Early Modern theatre-making, presenting clear, accessible discussions of historical theatre practice; stages and staging; and the relationship between actor and audience. She relays this into a series of training exercises for actors at all levels.
From 'Shakesball' and 'Telescoping' to elliptical energy training and the radiating box, this is a rich set of resources for anyone looking to tackle Shakespeare with authenticity and confidence.
