Tim Carroll on Shakespeare Link

"Every theatre performance is a kind of game," begins Tim Carroll, illustrating his vision of directing theatre in this interview on Shakespeare Link UK's website. A part of Shakespeare Link's "Sharing Shakespeare" series, Carroll's interview offers insight into how a director makes (and sometimes breaks) the game rules of every performance. While Carroll does not discuss Cymbeline directly, many of his ideas could stimulate visions for an ecodramaturgical production of that play. 

Tune in to the video above to hear about coaching actors to make new neural pathways in rehearsals, the "devil" that haunts directorial decisions, and the thrilling tale of a performance where actors spontaneously played act four of Hamlet from the shoulders of their audience... literally.
