23rd English Talent Show - November 9, 2017            

We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place  for the first time.                                                                                                                                            -         T. S. Eliot                                                                                  

The visiting scholars gave us much to think about the topic of exploration in this year’s talent show.  

One interesting theme that emerged was the idea of journey, particularly travelling to the West.  In the Chinese classic story of The Monkey King, the group of companions were on an epic Westward journey.  In the Titanic section of the action, Jack and Rose were also journeying to the West: in their case, on the famed RMS Titanic from the old world of Europe to the New World.

The classic fairy-tale Cinderella rounded out this year’s presentations.  It famously portrays the journey of the benighted serving girl, Cinderella, to become the partner of the Prince, himself on a quest of exploration to find a suitable wife.    

All exploration depends on a certain amount of magic to ensure the journey’s success, as well as obstacles to be overcome.    

All of these parts of exploration were brought to life by the visiting scholars:    

-         The Monkey King’s famed magic;    

-         The blessings of the Fairy Godmother for all that Cinderella needed to attend the ball;    

-        The monsters in the cave interrupting the Monkey King’s progress;    

-         The ugly sisters and their dreadful mother, standing in the way of Cinderella’s true love;    

-         Other assorted love triangles in the lives of diverse Monkey King characters;    

-         The magic of the love between two young people from vastly different levels of society;  

-         The huge iceberg,  the obstacle to the supposedly-unsinkable RMS Titanic.    

Such talent!  Who can forget the machinations of evil, and scheming characters on the Monkey King journey; the twist in the tale of the classic fairy-tale (where Cinderella was in fact a boy!); and – perhaps this year’s stand-out – the Hollywood-worthy version we saw of Jack’s disappearance from Rose in the icy waters of the Atlantic.    

So, despite all the obstacles and helped by the odd touches of magic, all our scholars were themselves on their journeys of exploration.May they enjoy finding their starting places again, and know them for the first time!
