Quote of the month: “Speaking Shakespeare requires more than simply memorising texts. It needs a profound understanding of language and how it works. Actors have to engage fully with language before it can engage an audience. They must be able to connect to, experience and imagine the words concretely. They need to understand and internalise the physical operation of certain structures in rhythm and form, and work to realise them. The language must penetrate them, filling them with its power.” (Patsy Rodenburg’s Speaking Shakespeare)
