Act 1 scene1: Yin-YangThe Yin-Yang is an ancient Chinese symbol that represents the duality of nature and attempt to explain howeverything works. The outer circle represents “everything”, while the black and white shapes within the circlerepresent the interaction of two energies, called “yin” (black) and “yang” (white), which causes everything tohappen. They are not completely black and white, they cannot exist without each other. The shape of the yin andyang sections of the symbol, actually gives you a sense of the continual movement of the two energies, yin toyang and yang to yin, causing everything to happen. Therefore, the yin-yang represents all opposites.Your assignment: represent Romeo’s state oxymoronic state in Act I, scene I by creating your own yinyangsymbol.Directions:1.
