More Grade 8 Drama!

This morrow we had another Shakesperian drama class with Mr. Mark von Eschen:

Mark was directing us on telling the stories not just with our words, but with our actions too.

And he was also teaching us about stage-fighting! Yay!

We broke into pairs and choreographed our own fights.

And it turns out, in theatre, you can judo-throw people taller than you! Way to go Mark!

O noble emperor, do not fight by sea;
Trust not to rotten planks: do you misdoubt
This sword and these my wounds? Let the Egyptians
And the Phoenicians go a-ducking; we
Have used to conquer, standing on the earth,
And fighting foot to foot.

Soldier, Antony and Cleopatra, Act III, Scene VII
