“Absolutely fantastic. Mark was really engaging, knowledgeable and encouraging – he was just perfect. It has really enhanced their study of the play and I am so appreciative. I hope that we can work with you again."
"The discussion of key themes and different interpretations of the text massively benefitted the students. Mark created a supportive atmosphere in which even the students who were shy at first felt confident to express themselves. 10/10 – An excellent opportunity for our students!"
“The whole workshop was wonderful! My students enjoyed it immensely and were inspired by Mark’s enthusiasm for Greek theatre. We are rarely able to have workshops because of the expense so thank you so much for giving us this opportunity.”
“We loved the the new approaches to the text - students are still using them. It was great to see the confidence developed/shown by some of the students in the session which was unexpected. This was really good for some of the students who would never have a chance otherwise. More please!”
“The chorus exercises were very good and exercises on actions with different emotions were very useful. We would love to have your company back. We really appreciate [these opportunities] as our budget has been shrunk and we can’t afford workshops anymore.”
“The students getting the opportunity to work with some of the text of the performance of Antigone that they saw Actors of Dionysus perform back in Oct/Nov was a highlight. The advice and comments that Will gave the students was very valuable and knowledgeable.”
“10 out of 10 – they loved it and wanted to read more Greek drama. In fact the pupils want someone to come in and show them how to perform the plays in the Greek. This was a very worthwhile experience and the pupils were inspired by this workshop.”
“It was really helpful having an outside practitioner leading the workshop as it provided a different dynamic. The students have taken a number of the ideas and points discussed and used them to inspire their own project which is exactly what I wanted to happen.”
‛‛Mark Katz ran a fantastic workshop, which focused on the physical comedy of Lysistrata and the rehearsal techniques that could be used for their own director’s interpretation. Practical and creative.His enthusiasm and energy engaged the students.’
‛Lively and engaging workshop which focused very neatly on the particular aspects of the play that we were studying. An excellent combination of background information and context,with detailed analysis of the structure of the play and the roles of the various characters and the chorus was truly excellent.’
