Looking ahead... Transformation and Imaginative Improvisation development in the months ahead.

"Her crest feathers rise,she leans back, tummy feathers fluffed, shoulders dropped, toes very tight on the glove. Her demeanour switches from everything scares me to I see it all: I own all this and more."
(Helen Macdonald, H is for Hawk, 2014, p 178)

RCS Troilus and Cressida at the Globe Jaunary 2017

I have had the great pleasure of working through January with the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland's MA Classical and Contemporary Text actors and directors in training at the Globe.

This partnership of RCS with the Globe is a great example of how a focused four weeks of Actor training with directors, voice, movement, singing and dance professionals in the extraordinary theatre that is the Globe, can illuminate the play,(Troilus and Cressida), by giving the developing actors and directors specific tools to better use themselves in order to tell the audience the story.
