Swords and Shakespeare

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Sometimes it takes a bit of a “tag” to interest students in Shakespeare. This workshop combines the art of swordplay with the words of the Bard. Learn the basic moves, with safety, then how to choreograph those moves into a scene from Macbeth or Hamlet. Not to be confused with fencing, swordplay is just that…play. Good for Theatre History or a Film Study unit, students will be able to create scenes with swordplay, while analyzing TV shows and movies that use the craft. The unit also subtly focuses on preventing violence in the ‘real’ world.
