RSC Learning is in its eighth year of working in an exclusive partnership with Dulwich College International, delivering an arts education programme in seven of its schools across Asia.

The partnership

The collaboration includes a wide variety of exciting and unique opportunities for students aged 5 to 18 to deepen their knowledge and understanding of Shakespeare’s works through using tried and tested strategies from the RSC’s rehearsal rooms. Our programme of work includes CPD sessions with teachers across the network of schools, artist residencies in schools across Asia, and an annual Shakespeare Festival, delivered as part of EiM’s holistic Worldwise Events programme. Students have also had the opportunity to see the RSC's Matilda The Musical as part of the production's international tour. In November 2022, students from Dulwich College Seoul attended the show performance at the D-Cube Theatre in Seoul, South Korea, the first foreign language production of the show. In March 2024, Dulwich College (Singapore) also watched Matilda The Musical at Marina Bay Sands.

Dulwich Shakespeare Festival 2023

In October 2023, six Associate Learning Practitioners travelled to Beijing as part of our eighth year of working in partnership with Dulwich College International. They curated the first in-person Shakespeare Festival since 2019, focusing on the theme of Reconnection. Seven schools, 104 students and 12 teachers took part in a series of workshops including teachers CPD, exploring the use of language and characters in Much Ado about Nothing, Twelfth Night, Romeo and Juliet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The week ended with students performing their own devised pieces inspired by the Reconnection theme using Shakespeare’s language.
