Ken Loach in Conversation with Professor Judith Buchanan
Monday 8th February 2021 at 6pm (GMT)
In this joint event between St Peter's College and TORCH, distinguished and multi-award-winning British filmmaker, social campaigner and St Peter’s College alumnus, Ken Loach (Jurisprudence, 1957), will discuss his filmmaking career with Professor Judith Buchanan, Master of St Peter’s College Oxford.
Their conversation will concentrate on three remarkable films: Land and Freedom (1995), The Wind That Shakes the Barley (2006) and I, Daniel Blake (2016).
Sunday 14th Feb morning or afternoon session (10.00am-1.00pm or 2.30-5.30pm)
O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo? Deny thy father and refuse thy name. And I’ll no longer be a Capulet.
Everyone’s invited to this Valentine’s Day Zoom workshop where you’ll spend three hours exploring your voice as you explore Romeo and Juliet – by speaking them. The session will start with a vocal warm-up, go through a guided, summarised read-through, and then explore the play’s most famous speeches using vocal exercises that help professional actors explore text. The idea is that speakers don’t focus on the challenges of Shakespeare’s language but allow his words to speak them. And on Valentine’s Day what better words could anyone allow to speak them than these words of love?
At the end of the session you’ll have a greater understanding of your own voice, and of the language of Romeo and Juliet. You’ll also be a more lyrical lover.
Participate on your own or with your loved one.
My name's Matthew Collins and for ten years I was a presenter on BBC2's The Travel Show. I then brought up two boys alone. But when my kids became teenagers I began a new career - teaching Shakespeare in prison. I did this for ten years until the pandemic - in men's and women's prisons. My approach was to get participants speaking Shakespeare's words - and feeling their effects on their breath, their heartbeat, their posture.... After the usual, initial reservations ("**** this guv"), most participants would love it. And men would sometimes even beg me for sonnets - that they put in letters to girlfriends, passing off Shakespeare's lines as their own. ("My girl loved that eye of heaven bit...."). I taught in prison until the pandemic. And then started running workshops online. As well as prisoners, I run Speaking Shakespeare workshops in schools. And for the Women's Institute.
And now, I'm running a special Valentine's Day project called: Explore Romeo and Juliet - by speaking them. It's open to people who know Shakespeare very well or very little. It's open to people who love or loathe public speaking; and it's open to native as well as non-native speakers of English. It's for singles and couples (together or separated by Covid).
