Beckett for Beginners! ("Waiting For Godot" 5 week course)

  • Nov 12, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

 A 5-week workshop in English, all theatre-lovers, all levels welcome!

The aim of this workshop is to help you find a character and interact with others in a relaxed, playful and friendly atmosphere. 

We'll do a physical and vocal warm-up plus scenes from "Waiting for Godot".

Godot is a classic of 20th Century theatre - it can often seem "tragic" but it is in fact a wonderfully funny, moving work about friendship and hope.... and existential struggle!!!

The first scene is online now, under the PHOTOS menu. The second scene will be online ASAP.

Please bring comfortable clothes (a tracksuit, a loose sweatshirt or t-shirt and a pair of light shoes or just plain socks), a bottle of water and your script.

Please aim to be on time. The room is open from 6pm, so you're welcome to arrive early in order to change and start warming up. The class will start at 6.30pm sharp.



You only need to sign up for WEEK ONE - you will then be automatically added to the rest of the course.

Any questions email me or call on[masked] 14.

See you soon in Salles St-Roch !

    As I had a hard time trying to get a proper print of the uploaded scanned copy of ACT 1 scenes, I took the liberty to create a doc version of it, soircing the text from the below site:­

    I have uploaded the jpg versions. It's available on the photos section. I have cross checked and the lines seem the same.
    Later today.

    Hi Serge et al,
    I'm hunting for theatre workshops in English designed for English-language learners, intermediate level. Does anyone have suggestions/recommendations of relevant offerings in Paris? I'm working with a motivated business English student who is interested in theatre, so I'd love to help connect him with an appropriate program.
    Thanks in advance for any information.
    Best regards,

      Hello Jennifer, you could probably suggest to your student to come along tomorrow evening and find out about our "Beckett for Beginners" meet up. We'll be practicing theatre exercises in English and studying scenes from "Waiting for Godot" over the next 5 weeks. If he/she is interested, there are other meet ups with our Paris Drama in English group.
