One of theREP’s most popular On-The-Go! shows, “Shakespeare the Remix” compares the power of language found in Shakespeare’s work with that of early hip-hop and slam poetry. Shayla, a hip teenage girl tackles some of the most famous characters in Shakespeare’s written works. She finds herself in a verbal battle with the Bard himself with both Elizabethan text and her modern-day slam poetry. Students will experience bits from “Hamlet,” “Macbeth,” and “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” “Shakespeare the Remix” is a striking mix of Shakespeare’s text with fresh, original hip-hop poetry and music.
