Romeo and Juliet Reloaded

Seit einigen Jahren richten Schülerinnen und Schüler unserer Schule in Q2 einen Literaturabend aus, auch um damit einen finanziellen Beitrag zur Kursfahrt in Q3 zu erwirtschaften. Aus der diesjährigen Literature Night des Englisch-Tutoriums gedacht, hat sich in wenigen Wochen ein kursübergreifendes Jahrgangsprojekt der Q2 entwickelt.

Die Beschäftigung mit William Shakespeares Drama „Romeo and Juliet  im Unterricht, noch dazu im Jubiläumsjahr 2016, hat enorme Energien freigesetzt und bis dahin ungeahnte Qualitäten unserer Schülerinnen und Schüler ans Licht gebracht.


Heraus kam „Romeo and Juliet Reloaded“ eine im Text gekürzte und zum Teil modifizierte, mit modernen Medien inszenierte, „ge-genderte“ und mit Ton- und Lichteffekten abgerundete Aufführung, die von Mitschülern, Eltern und Lehrern mit großem Applaus bedacht wurde.
