Characters from A Midsummer Night's Dream

Characters from A Midsummer Night's Dream | Jessica Laliberte's: A Midsummer Night's Dream | Scoop.it
Jessica Laliberte's insight:

 LITERACY CRITICSM: This article discusses all the characters in A Midsummer Night's Dream. They came from deep physiological principles. Shakespeare made two different characters from the same materials and situations, something no poet could have done.

 Shakespeare also made it very descriptive unlike anything else.

Shakespeare's Inventions

Shakespeare's Inventions | Jessica Laliberte's: A Midsummer Night's Dream | Scoop.it
Jessica Laliberte's insight:

IMAGE: I chose this image because it shows Shakespeare invented most of his words. 1,700 of the words we use today were invented by him. Some words that he invented no one would have thought to put them together to make a word.

Dancer's Commentary

Listen in as Principal dancer, Carla Körbes and Corps member, Ezra Thomson watch their rehearsal footage of the Donkey Pas de Deux from Balanchine's A Midsum...
Jessica Laliberte's insight:

VIDEO: This video shows the scene when Titania falls in love with what is now a donkey. The dancer incorporated little things from the actual scene in the dance to make the dance come alive.

This video was really cool. It shows how the play can be transferred in to a dance and how the play stays the same no matter when it is performed.
