Description

In this enlightening and instructive program by UK producer Kieron Jones, viewers will explore the power of drama and compare the reactions of students from two very different countries. Starting in Beechen Cliff School in Bath, England, Kieron takes his unique teaching style to get students performing their own version of The Tempest and stimulates an interest in studying Shakespeare like never before. He then travels to Brazil and uses the same drama activities with young people in the dangerous war-stricken favelas (shantytowns) of Vitoria and Rio de Janeiro to highlight the importance of Shakespearian drama to cross social boundaries.
