Phileas Fogg theatre workshop In love with Shakespeare
Phileas Fogg theatre workshops.
In love with Shakespeare
On May 17th our 3rd year TTO students participated in a theatre workshop with Ben and Jet from the Phileas Fogg Theatre Company. The first part of the workshop was about introducing the students to the past of theatre and about performing on stage. After the introduction the students got the task to make pairs and then they had to insult each other using a list of words they hadn’t seen before and without knowing the meaning of the words. They had to use body language and gestures while insulting each other. After this 6 students got chosen to practise the Shakespeare play. The students that were left had to make sound effects like thunder or the gallop of a horse. During the second part of the workshop the students had to make a play of their own in small groups, based on a story and they had to put a hidden message in the play. It was a really engaging activity for our bilingual students. Something where they could really let off some steam. Photos can be found in the photoalbum on the website.
