October 22, 2013 by MrsWinnacott   

This week is all about performing. For a bit of fun, your task is to watch a series of videos focusing on the performance of Shakespeare. Performing Shakespeare is not always easy, but the videos should give you a bit of an idea of what people find so fun and exciting about performing Shakespeare!

  1. What People Think We Do
  2. Stuff People at a Shakespeare Festival Say


If you have not already seen it yet, also watch the following Rowan Atkinson video:
  1. Pink Tights and Plenty of Props 


If you would like a bit of extension, watch the following videos on Shakespeare’s “original pronunciation”- it explains why words that Shakespeare wrote would have rhymed in his time, but don’t rhyme today, and shows this in practice.

  1. Performing Shakespeare in its Original Pronunciation
  2. Performing “A Midsummer’s Night’s Dream” in Original Pronunciation


You will find these videos available for download on the Student Drive by following the path T:\Year 9\English\Mrs Winnacott\Shakespeare\Performing Shakespeare.
