Task 2 Word BoardThe images I have collected are a mix of hip hop art, city pictures and pictures from the film Romeo and Juliet.With hip hop art it is bright, vibrant and has big lettering which could be incorporated into the images I create, the cityPictures fit in because the images would have to be set in an urban setting either London or Manchester. The Romeo andJuliet images from the film show that the two families are either criminal empires or just powerful families that have aRivalry.All these images come in useful as they link together urban setting and hip hop go together while the imagery of crimeFamily fits with the urban images also. Which could come together in the images that I create.
Task 2 Mood Board 2The Hip Hop Shakespeare Company was founded by Hip Hop artist „Akala‟ and is aimed at young people from allbackgrounds as a way to cohesion between young people and be creative throughout various art forms. The philosophyThat Akala holds is that Shakespeares workings were wrote in slang or common speak from the time. This makesSense in that common people or the working class loved Shakespeares plays and were his main audience.Furthermore the HHSC does live performances round the country and also does workshops for children andTeenagers.
Task 2 Mood Board 3Romeo and Juliet is the story of two “star crossed lovers” who are in rival families, this leading to their love beingForbidden, furthermore as the story goes on they become married while their parents do not know of thisHoping to have Juliet in an arranged marriage, although she cannot as she is married to Romeo, furthermoreFriar Lawrence agrees to give her a potion that will appear to be dead and send for Romeo to take her out of the city.At the end of the story Romeo believes Juliet to be dead and kills himself, Juliet then wakes up and then finds RomeoDead, by which she then kills herself, leading to the families forgetting their rivalry with the shock of their childrenDying because of it.
Themes of Romeo + JulietLove is one of the biggest themes of the play. Followed by Death, time, fate and loyalty.There are also the universal themes of the destructiveness of feuds and doomed romance.Love vs. Hate, Light vs. Dark and Fate vs. DeterminismViolence, religion; and the integrity of youth.Independent, anti-authority, rebellious, populist and about the impetuousness of youth.Family breakdowns, gang wars and international strife.
