Shakespeare's Women; Hanging by a Thread


Aerial Lines

Workshops for Aerialists & Actors


Exploratory workshops bringing aerialists and actors together to explore the text of Macbeth on the floor, the air and the space in between.

These workshops are part of a project to develop a new

methodology for working with voice, text & aerial; combining circus and acting to find a common language.


We are interested in encouraging and informing opportunities for people from multi-disciplinary backgrounds and most importantly a wider range of socio-economic and racial backgrounds, supporting

the under-represented.


Dates: 20th, 21st, 27th & 28th August 10 - 4pm


Cost per day: £10*

*If you have attended Shakespeare for Circus Performers or Aerial for Actors workshop then you can attend one day for free!


Location: Unit 15, Premier Business Park, Sussex St, St Philip's, Bristol BS2 0RA


How it works: Choose which of the above days you would like to come to, please let us know your chosen dates when booking.


Circus performers, you are welcome to bring your own equipment if you would like to. We will have ropes & silks in the space.


What it involves: A series of movement, text and devising exercises. Devising new approaches to staging Macbeth and an opportunity for you to explore new ways of working with your skills/equipment.


We warmly welcome anyone who has been to our previous  Shakespeare & Aerial workshops to join us and have the opportunity to hone your new skills. Whilst we will safely facilitate skill shares within the workshop we won't be leading classes and with aerial in particular we ask you to work within your limits.


Booking: Email Parkey & Grania at stating your chosen dates and your rigging requirements if bringing aerial kit.

We kindly ask that all participants take a lateral flow test before attending the workshop.
