Whoosh - into Shakespeare

Hands on workshop

Trying to find an interactive way to go through the world of a play / story in a limited amount of time? Dive into the world of the play with a WHOOSH! This engaging and interactive storytelling technique enables any kind of story – simple or complex – to be brought alive, even without prior knowledge of the characters or plot! We will explore this using one of Shakespeare's plays!
