This workshop aims to encourage students to actively engage with Shakespeare by bringing it, as intended, onto the stage. It will explore the context of Shakespeare's plays and allow students to work with and experience his unique dialogue on a physical level. By experimenting with scenes from "Romeo and Juliet" in particular, students will access the playwright, his characters and his themes in a new way. This will leave them feeling comfortable to both read and watch Shakespeare's work, as well as making it their own.
In diesem Workshop setzen sich die Schüler aktiv mit Shakespeares Texten und Charakteren auseinander – schließlich hat Shakespeare für die Bühne geschrieben, nicht für den Schreibtisch. Der Workshop wird den Kontext von Shakespeares Stücken erkunden und es den Schülern ermöglichen, mit Shakespeare zu arbeiten und seinen einzigartigen Dialog auf der physischen Ebene zu erleben. Insbesondere durch das Experimentieren mit Szenen aus "Romeo und Julia" werden die Schülerinnen und Schüler einen neuen Zugang zum Dramatiker, seinen Figuren und Themen finden. Auf diese Weise können sie Shakespeares Werk nicht nur lesen und sehen, sondern es auch zu ihrem eigenen Werk machen.
FEEDBACK FROM SCHOOLS
"It was really interesting and almost exactly like I expected it to be! The longer it went on the more comfortable I got with acting."
"It was marvellous to do some acting again and the experience was splendid :)"
"I totally agree with them. It was an amazing experience and real fun. I would definitely be interested in a drama group at school :)"
"I agree too, it was an amazing experience and nice to see how different the perspectives can be just by changing the emphasis a bit!"
