As you all know, all 2009 intake TESLians are now busy with our coursework, a play production called Macbeth. As we are going to be assessed and marks will be given for this assignment, so everyone in the college are expecting a bombastic performance by the students. This is just a random fact, that I get while struggling with "MACBETH". I realized that Macbeth is no ordinary play, but full with hidden stories, drama and tense. So, enjoy my post for today: The Curse of Macbeth!
- I have to be a Props Leader, which I HATE VERY MUCH! but I finally realized that by being a leader, I can ask my group members to do this and that and I kind of liking it, but the burden I'm carrying is hard also. The lecturer in-charge will interrogate me whenever she saw me in the college. I'd rather run away and do things I like in the way I am. As cited from her, decisions are to be made in a concession so, I'm sorry. I'm practicing it with other props members.
- I heard that Macbeth is a haunted play. Is it true? I heard lots of stories from my seniors, and lecturers. OMG! Mr Mano said that whenever people are rehearsing for Macbeth, someone will have the opportunity to actually see the spirit of Macbeth watching it! The lights in the auditorium will be on and off by itself. Scary is it? Then, in the library, Mr Mano said that there's a room upstairs which cannot be opened and there are spirits dramatizing the play of Macbeth, inside the room. I heard that there are some props and backdrop inside the room but what a waste because somebody else is USING it. Seniors, especially Kak Miza, please tell me more about this case! Well, I hope that these creepy stuffs will never try their luck on me, I'm not so brave to face these things.
- My relationship with my friends and seniors are torn apart. I mean, we used to be close, hang out together but because of Macbeth, we rarely go out together, and talk till I felt so alone. Regarding the lecturers, I think I'm okay with Mr Mano, he's such an understanding lecturer, but I had some conflicts with other lecturers. They want this and that, and the way they talk is like the urge me to do things in their way. No way man! I can accept their opinion but still I have to discuss with others from Props Committee. Now, I feel more at ease as we are on the right track.
Hurm, I will update more about the curse of Macbeth. I will try to explore more about the hidden world of William Shakespeare and Macbeth! Till I write again next time, I'm Azham Vosovic, signing off!
