KS3 English - The Tempest at Bolsover School

mediumblue

Summary

Year 9 pupils at The Bolsover School in Derbyshire tell the story of Shakespeare's The Tempest, but not as we know it.

The pupils of the business and enterprise specialist school use a variety of different music genres, including rap and gamelan, to convey their own version of the play. The post-modern theme is further continued with sections of breakdance.

Between extracts of the show, breakdancer and rapper Charlie takes us through the rehearsals and classroom preparations.
