On 20th March 2013, a group of St. John’s Middle School students set off on the Eurostar from Brussels to London to participate in the ISTA Middle School. I arrived in London and we went to ASL (American School of London) to meet the ISTA team and join our acting groups.
The theme this year was Shakespeare … Talking Shakespeare is a strange thing. Everyone was divided into different workshops and my workshop focused on Macbeth. On the first couple of days I found it difficult to understand ‘Macbeth’ however, as soon as you start to understand the language a little more, all of a sudden it does not seem so strange. The words then come to life and it starts to make sense.
