The Alternative Shakespeare Collaboration

Announcement of new project for Actors!!

Calls will soon go out for Actors to take part in this work.

On the back of all the experiences we've gleaned to date, we are excited to announce the creation

of a new Theatre company, one that brings Shakespeare's acting company back to life!

A fanciful notion yes, but we believe that, in Theatre, fanciful is more often than

not where the best things start - in the imagination.

This is what we're going to do:

Bring together a permanent acting company to help recreate new

Shakespeare plays out of old Shakespeare plays.

Follow the acting practice, as best we can, that might have

existed in Shakespeare's Theatre.

Work together to understand how Shakespeare worked

collaboratively with his actors.

Take the existing Shakespeare plays and apply

the AlternativeTheatre methods.

Isolate his characters, themes, speeches, lines,

scenes etc from their original setting​.

Workshop the text in Zoom sessions to discover how

it works and comes to theatrical life.

Bring our own experiences of the world

to enrich our creative process.

Create new plays for stage performances,

books, audio pieces, videos etc.

Provide material for our AlternativeShakespeare

podcasts (launching this year).​

Out of the work of the TASCO project will emerge a body of AlternativeShakespeare work, as well as a

fascinating insight into the conditions that helped form the original Shakespeare plays.
