Narayanganj Ideal School wins place in global Shakespeare celebration event
Shakespeare Lives in Schools Day encourages schoolchildren of all ages to learn about Shakespeare as a playwright for the whole world, by joining in global celebrations of his 400th anniversary this year. It aims to encourage schoolchildren to address challenging questions and themes about the human experience in a fun and exciting way. Schoolchildren from the United Kingdom and countries across the world including Congo, South Africa, Mexico, Colombia, Croatia and Bangladesh, entered a competition to contribute to the retelling of Macbeth. They used video, photos, audio clips, illustrations, posters, presentation slides, comic strips, cardboard puppets and even an Instagram photo feed. The competition attracted 79 entries from 29 countries with 10 schools making the final cut of the video. The schoolchildren were invited to choose a favourite scene or key speech from the play and illustrate it, capture it or perform it. The pupils at Narayanganj Ideal School performed Macbeth Act 5, Scene 1 for the submission. To mark the achievement, Narayanganj Ideal School screened the final film at their school premises along with many other exciting activities on 5 December 2016. Jim Scarth OBE, Acting Country Director British Council, Mr. Kashem Jamal, Chairman of Narayanganj Ideal School Management Committee and Mr Anoware Hossain – Head Teacher, Narayangonj Ideal School with school children were present at the celebration. To celebrate Shakespeare Lives in March 2016 the British Council, in collaboration with Dhaka Theatre and Graeae Theatre Company (UK), has performed a 75-minute theatre play titled ‘A Different Romeo and Juliet’ to mark the legendary British playwright William Shakespeare’s 400th death anniversary. The production's truly unique feature was that it was performed entirety by 14 highly talented disabled artists. It was led by Jenny Sealey, Artistic Director of Graeae Theatre Company in collaboration with Dhaka Theatre’s Nasiruddin Yousuff, renowned Bangladeshi director. Shakespeare Lives is an unprecedented global programme of events and activities celebrating William Shakespeare’s work on the occasion of the 400th anniversary of his death in 2016.
