Tragedy in Performance


Tragedy has been the most powerful and sublime dramatic form since the Ancient Greeks created it. The greatest playwrights from Aeschylus to Beckett and beyond have worked in this medium, producing some of the most famous plays in existence.

This lively and entertaining course explores the daring new techniques in situ: has applied to old masterpieces such as Sophocles’s Oedipus Rex, Ibsen’s Hedda Gabler; Beckett’s Krapp’s Last Tape, Aeschylus’s Oresteia Trilogy, and Shakespeare’s Macbeth, Hamlet and Measure for Measure.

This course explores the many fascinating aspects of Tragedy, looking at texts from The Greeks, Shakespeare and the Modern Period; experimenting with the acting techniques associated with Tragedy, such as Mask and Chorus; and using some of the experimental approaches to text and staging that in situ: has developed over the past decade and a half.

Participants will be asked to learn short dialogues from Greek, Shakespearean and Modern Tragedy which will be supplied on booking.

As with all of in situ:’s work, there will be a strong emphasis on physical and vocal technique. And, needless to say, the subject might be Tragedy but the classes are, first and foremost, FUN!
