_SHAKESPEARE ONLINE SESSIONS
During these challenging times for everyone across the world, we want to respond constructively and creatively to support artists and audiences as much as we can. The whole theatre industry has been responding with characteristic vim and vigour and we are so proud to be a part of that community.
The Faction is run by a very small team, but a mighty one who work in collaboration with the ensemble. For the next 6 weeks we are offering students due to graduate from drama school in 2020 free one-to-one 45 minute video sessions. These sessions will be on Friday afternoons and you can sign up here. Please only sign up for one session and let us know if you need to cancel so we can offer the session back out. All sessions for the next 6 weeks are bookable below by time slot.
The session will be with one of our artistic directors Rachel or Mark and should focus on a piece of Shakespeare text of your choosing. The session will offer tailored feedback with a focus on the specific toolkit The Faction use when building their award winning work.
This is just a start, we will review this offer and look at how we can adapt and expand and offer more training to more people in due course, but please do get in touch with your thoughts firstname.lastname@example.org
