Shakespeare Tai Chi from our film ‘Shakespeare Day’

A few years ago we made a film called ‘Shakespeare Day’. A group of people chance upon an event called (spookily) ‘Shakespeare Day’. On entering and playing around with the plastic props and cheesey costumes they start to merge with scenes from Shakespeare (oo-err) depending on their real life situations (the couple who fancy each other end up playing out scenes from Romeo & Juliet for example). So scenes from Shakespeare are linked with the scenes of the group enjoying the outdoor event and we filmed these without sound & put them to the wonderful music of Kevin Macleod from – a fantastic resource of music to accompany films, videos and live performance.
In this clip two of the group emerge from ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ scene to find that one of the lads (who obviously fancies himself as a Shakespearean King) is leading the group in a Tai Chi sequence based on famous lines from various plays … see if you can guess what they are!
