Told by an Idiot have been inspired by Shakespeare in a variety of different ways. From our international anarchic street happening Kill Will, to our co production with the Royal Shakespeare Company of The Comedy of Errors, from our bilingual collaboration of A Midsummer Night's Dream with the Svenka Theatre in Helsinki to our acclaimed 5 star deconstruction of King Lear; My Perfect Mind.
This workshop examines closely the Idiots approach to Shakespeare. Through a variety of exercises including finding the game in the scene, following a physical impulse and owning the text, a vibrant, dynamic contemporary and practical approach to playing Shakespeare is revealed.
