Decoding Shakespeare In Three Hours

- OUTLINE -

Word Forward (WF) offers the expertise of contemporary spoken word artists and Poetry Slam™ concept to bring to life the brilliant works, verse, rhythm and language of the great bard, Shakespeare.

Shakespearean drama is classic spoken word poetry. By the end of the programme, students will 'feel' the essence of a selected play, verse or sonnet despite surface differences in language used.

The methods used to decode Shakespeare in class are pragmatic and student-centred.

2) To introduce Shakesperean works in a fun and accessible way.
3) To show the relevance and universality of Shakespearean works.
4) To appreciate the rhythm and the poetry in the bard's works.
5) To share how Shakespeare captures the range of human emotions in simple, yet profoundly eloquent verse that transcends time and culture.
