Essere Shakespeare Series: The Merchant of Venice

Rating: 0/5

In this course, participants will bring 'The Merchant of Venice' by William Shakespeare to life through an immersive, highly active exploration of Shakespearean language, the psychology of the play’s characters and their relationships, and the world they are steeped in: 16th century Venice. Indeed as part of the course, we will be visiting Venice and performing extracts from the play in the very places that are home to the play’s characters. The course will culminate with a devised version of The Merchant of Venice, created and performed by the participants as a group.
