Structuring Brief 4

This week, we created a proper plan to split up the work between group members. Rob will be working on the adaptations page of the blog, conducting an interview with a dancer who creates adaptations for a living. Lucas will create the introduction for the Romeo & Juliet page and I will do the same for the static home page, “Texts”. Lucas and I will also analyse a number of Romeo & Juliet adaptations – including West Side Story – in different mediums.

We came up with three questions to help keep our analyses focused and on the same track.

  1. What is the core focus of this adaptation?
    • Themes, characters, story, setting
    • Do these elements stay constant or are changes made?
  2. How does each adaptation reflect the time in which it was made?
  3. How does the form influence the message and relatability of the text?
