Are you a fan of Shakespeare? Watch our students participate in our “Play Your Shakespeare ” with the British Council – Reaching out to China #Shakespearelives

Are you a fan of Shakespeare? This past February our students participated in “Play Your Shakespeare” , a digital mass participation project, which will encourage people to watch, create and share content globally on Chinese social media. Play Your Shakespeare is part of the British Council’s Shakespeare Lives campaign, a major programme of events and activities celebrating Shakespeare’s work in the 400th anniversary year of his death. This important anniversary represents an opportunity to enhance and reinforce the UK’s reputation as a nation of creativity and innovation with a rich cultural heritage. Our students performed the famous Witches scene from Macbeth in a real film studio in the heart of Soho! They did a fantastic job!

在刚过去的2月份里,我们的学生参与了“扮演你的莎士比亚”大众媒体活动,此次活动促进了中国媒体对莎士比亚的介绍传播,鼓励了大众的创造力,并在世界范围内分享了其精神内涵.“扮演你的莎士比亚”活动是英国文化部为庆祝莎翁去世400年纪念日的一个重要活动,这个重要的纪念日是展示英国深厚文化遗产的一个难得机会,同时也有利于展示英国不懈的创造力!在市中心的一个真实电影摄影棚里,我们的学生表演了《麦克白》中最著名的巫婆选段,他们出色的完成了表演!

Here’s our rehearsal video we shot while preparing.

Read the original scene our actresses performed from Macbeth!

SCENE I. A cavern. In the middle, a boiling cauldron.

Thunder. Enter the three Witches

First Witch

Thrice the brinded cat hath mew’d.

Second Witch

Thrice and once the hedge-pig whined.

Third Witch

Harpier cries ‘Tis time, ’tis time.

First Witch

Round about the cauldron go;

In the poison’d entrails throw.

Toad, that under cold stone

Days and nights has thirty-one

Swelter’d venom sleeping got,

Boil thou first i’ the charmed pot.

ALL

Double, double toil and trouble;

Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.

Second Witch

Fillet of a fenny snake,

In the cauldron boil and bake;

Eye of newt and toe of frog,

Wool of bat and tongue of dog,

Adder’s fork and blind-worm’s sting,

Lizard’s leg and owlet’s wing,

For a charm of powerful trouble,

Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

ALL

Double, double toil and trouble;

Fire burn and cauldron bubble.

Third Witch

Scale of dragon, tooth of wolf,

Witches’ mummy, maw and gulf

Of the ravin’d salt-sea shark,

Root of hemlock digg’d i’ the dark,

Liver of blaspheming Jew,

Gall of goat, and slips of yew

Silver’d in the moon’s eclipse,

Nose of Turk and Tartar’s lips,

Finger of birth-strangled babe

Ditch-deliver’d by a drab,

Make the gruel thick and slab:

Add thereto a tiger’s chaudron,

For the ingredients of our cauldron.

ALL

Double, double toil and trouble;

Fire burn and cauldron bubble.

Second Witch

Cool it with a baboon’s blood,

Then the charm is firm and good.

End of Scene
