I’ve posted about the World Theatre Video and the World Theatre Day projects before (here and here) and today I wanted to share with you our first video for the project. Performers were given one of the hardest monologues in the English language – Hamlet’s “To Be or Not To Be” monologue from William Shakespeare’s Hamlet.
Already I can see huge improvements from our initial video back in March in terms of performance quality and cinematography. All the performers have done a tremendous job.
I have been presenting at a number of TeachMeets in Sydney spruiking our project in the hope of getting more schools involved. It’s definitely getting a lot of positive feedback so hopefully more young performers will get involved.
This month, November, we are looking at Edgar Allan Poe’s famous poem The Raven. It is another challenging piece so the more schools we have involved, the more we can share the challenge of performing each of the stanzas.

You can also share and use the Slide Share presentation I have been taking round to schools to promote our project.
Enjoy the video.
