London 2012: Hip-hop Othello for Shakespeare festival
US hip-hop artists the Q Brothers have visited a Birmingham school to perform a rap version of Shakespeare's Othello.
Othello: The Remix is part of the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad festival at the Globe Theatre.
The pupils were also asked to write their own rap and perform it in front of the other students.
Martin Bayliss, principal at Holyhead School in Handsworth, said: "Rap is poetry and Shakespeare was a rapper of his time."
