Weekly Challenge, 6th August – O Romeo, Romeo
.
Wow! What a week of creative energy and enthusiasm for week 2 of our Shakespeare Birthplace Trust challenges. It was great to see such a range of favourite and new-found quotes with paired images that celebrated Shakespeare’s influence and connected his words with modern times. So how can we take the final challenge to the next level? How can we lift Romeo and Juliet off the page and into real life? We thought we could start with one of the most often quoted scenes… O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?
.
Re-create the balcony scene in Romeo and Juliet as a photo. You could give it a go by yourself or invite others to join you. If you’re shy think about what else you could use – Lego? Dolls? Playdoh? Watch the scene for inspiration on the Shakespeare BT’s website (search Romeo & Juliet Aloud). Build on your Shakespeare journey and end the trio of challenges exploring a new way of being creative this week. Enjoy!
