The Seven Ages of Man (Humankind)

The students and teachers of the Dulwich College Seoul community have come together to celebrate the spirit of multiculturalism and collaboration through the words of William Shakespeare. It started with a live workshop online with a practitioner in the UK, who explored the meaning of the speech, ‘The Seven Ages of Man’ from the play ‘As you like it’. It is part of the Dulwich Shakespeare Festival, which is ‘digital’ this year due to Covid-19. The concept was to perform the whole speech together, with male and female students from Year 1 to Year 13, to mark the difficult and unique times that we find ourselves in. We wanted to find a way to reflect on the impact of Covid-19 on our lives and express the importance of supporting each other. I would like to thank the students and staff involved during the workshop, the filming, the editing and the production, helping to shape what will become a very important memory for all our community.
