Part of studying English in the International section means studying Shakespeare. Each year, from 6th grade on, we study different plays by
Shakespeare in the original version. In addition, for the past several years, the 9th grade class not only studies a play, but re-writes a modern version of Shakespeare, which we then act and film.
We have re-told : « Twelfth Night » https://vimeo.com/5333745,
« Midsummer Night’s Dream » https://vimeo.com/12665962,
« The Tempest » https://vimeo.com/44615396 and
« Much Ado About Nothing » https://vimeo.com/25468827.
Our modern versions are considerably shorter than the originals, but remain true to the spirit of Shakespeare.
Enjoy watching !
