Englisch-LK besucht "Romeo & Julia"

12. Jun 2024

Am 6. Juni durften wir, der Englisch-Leistungskurs der J1, zur Schulaufführung von Romeo und Julia unter der Leitung unserer ehemaligen Lehrerin Frau Völk des St. Michael-Gymnasiums in Schwäbisch Hall fahren.

Es begleiteten uns Frau Bouwmeester, Frau Humpf und Herr Kraft, die dafür sorgten, dass wir trotz der späten Uhrzeit diese Vorstellung besuchen konnten. Das Theaterstück wurde mit der perfekten Balance zwischen dem Orginalstil mit direkten Zitaten und einer eher neumodischen Interpretation dargestellt. Dies sorgte dafür, dass wir das doch eher schwierige Theaterstück super verstehen konnten. Durch ein paar Witze verflog die Zeit sehr schnell. Auch die Kostümwahl war gelungen, da durch die eindeutigen T-Shirts mit "Team M“ bzw. "Team C" auf dem Rücken keine Verwirrung entstand, wer zu den Montagues und wer zu den Capulets gehörte. Man kann also sagen, dass es ein durchaus gelungener und sehr unterhaltsamer Abend war! Einen herzlichen Dank an die Schauspieler:innen und natürlich auch die Personen, welche im Hintergrund agierten.

Shakespeare's impact on us today

We recently read an article about Shakespeare, which we want to tell you about. The article deals with the topic of how Shakespeare's works influenced literature and how they still have an impact on us today. First of all, Shakespeare's themes such as “power”, “intrigue” and “exploring human nature” are timeless because they help us understand multi-layered human relationships, give us lessons about life and motivate us to question the complexity of human nature.

Also, Shakespeare's works are crossing borders of classic literature and, therefore, are adapted in today's pop culture. An example for that are the parallels between Shakespeare's “Hamlet” and “The Lion King”. In addition to that, Shakespeare's literature had a huge impact on language. He invented new words and phrases that are part of these are now part of common language and his works make us explore and understand language development. Students today learn how to use language, how to express strong emotions, how to form their character and how to explore deep topics through Shakespeare.

Lastly, the article argues that it is important to engage with Shakespeare in modern education because it helps with forming your own personality and having educated discussions about ethics, politics, psychology and human development. It also sharpens critical thinking. Concluding, it is safe to say that Shakespeare is still considered one of the greatest play writers and poets today!
