Hey everyone. I'd like some advice for a final trick for my English presentation.
A bit of background on the project:
I'm in 10th grade and we just finished reading Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar" and are expected to do a creative presentation on it. So, naturally, I chose to work magic into it somehow.
Here's what I have so far:
Discuss the view of Rome in the play. Compare it to a rose in it's beauty and such. Pull out a piece of tissue paper and continue in a poetic way while making an origami rose.
Perform the "Floating Rose" effect while discussing how Rome "rose above the rest." Introduce lighter while discussing the burning ambition of the Romans. Light the rose changing it into a real rose (for those that don't know the trick) and state that that ambition brought Rome to life.
Hold out the rose and begin talking about hatred within the grand city. Begin to list the conspiritors while plucking a few petals off. Eg. Casca *Pluck a petal* Cinna *Pluck* etc. End with the mention of Brutus ( for those not familiar with the assasination, Brutus was important ;) .) Perform Luke Jermay's "Divided by Hate" and cause the rose to wither and die.
Need to know what I could do from here on out. I'd like to somehow restore the rose while talking about Octavius coming to power. Or maybe cause the remainder of the rose to catch on fire. . .maybe even a reverse Step 1. Anyway :help:
Oh and sorry if it's a bit hard to follow.
