See Stories will lead two Shakespeare and Hip-Hop workshops at units in McLaughlin School in Anchorage. The workshops will be co-facilitated by See Stories Director Marie Acemah, hip-hop artist Tayy Tarantino, and actor/director Keith McGill. Students will rewrite a section of Othello as a hip hop song and perform their scenes. The workshops will expand on a current See Stories program at McLaughlin. Themes of betrayal, jealousy, love, and racism in Othello have resonated with students.
