A guest post by Erna Taverner
I am happy to say that I was lucky enough to attend the Shakespeare Meets Hip Hop presentation, on Saturday at the new Artscape space at 36 John Street.
The space itself is very clean and new. The theatre seats 150 people, and there was a wooden riser for a stage. The background was a screen with a scene to set the stage. The musical accompaniment seemed to happen by magic.
The presentation itself was very entertaining for adults as well as kids. The audience got involved by shouting out answers, being on the stage, and laughing.
It was informative, relevant, and provided a way to analyse Shakespeare by looking at key words at each stanza.
I really loved it and would love to see it again. They do it in schools during school year .
I heard someone say about Artscape “This is great addition for Weston.”
