    During the Elizabethan era, plays were performed outside, in the afternoon, with audience and actors fully visible to each other. In this webinar Dr Ildiko Solti will discuss the concept of shared-light playing at The Rose. She will explore some of the key principles and practices of shared-light playing, the audience’s role in a performance in full daylight and the intensity of experience that might produce.
