Epic Theatre in English

Students in IB Literature Year 2 spent a month reading and analyzing Dario Fo's work "Accidental Death of an Anarchist".  One of their culminating projects was to present a cultural or contextual understanding of the play. The concept of Epic Theatre encourages playwrights to address issues relating to the contemporary world around them. Our IB students chose to reset the play in the style of Commedia dell'arte to spark self-reflection. Here you can see them grilling each other's interpretation.
