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!
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.
- Performing Shakespeare in its Original Pronunciation
- 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.
