Eliza Langland

Author

 

"I write for those who like to go beneath the outward appearance of things and see beyond the literal; who

value academic rigour but recognise the role of subtext, and context, when assessing evidence. We must

be free to make up our own minds about what and who to believe, but it is in the silences, the spaces

in-between, in the raised eyebrow, the second look, that meaning is conveyed. Hence my passion for theatre. 

The art of the spoken and the unspoken word."

The re-thinker

To push beyond what we are taught, to uncover altogether different truths, takes confidence, training and experience, but it starts with vision.

 

What started as a hunch about a radical rethink produced startling results. Was the truth about a four hundred year old story simply forgotten? Or was it suppressed? Rethinking history, judge for yourself.

Woman Walking in Forest

Eliza Langland

Creative

A natural eye for a story. An ear for the rhythm and pulse of the right phrase. The right word in the right place. An innate sense of balance, style and content. In her writing of non-fiction, new insights or previously unconnected findings are backed up by patient and painstaking research and academic rigour.  

In her fiction, there's that ringing bell of truth.

In her acting and performing its the same: Joy. Truth. Authenticity. Believability.

Thou Art Alive!: A professional's guide to playing Shakespeare his way

A ‘how-to’ instruction book on the method Shakespeare and his actors used to stage his plays

when rehearsal time was scant to non-existent. This brief but detailed book gives guidance on

how to use parts and cues for yourself, letting see and feel how it worked - and still works today.
