'Splendid' Drama Workshop
The Drama Department kicked off the term with a performance and workshop from Splendid Productions.
They performed an adaptation of Alfred Jarry's Ubu which was a highly entertaining satire about the nature of power, leadership and corruption. With only two actors portraying a number of roles it was a masterclass for students to see professionals at work. We have been unable to have actors and plays in school due to the pandemic so it was fantastic to welcome Splendid back again.
We were also delighted to have a practitioner from Gecko Theatre in to help students prepare for their practical exams. This company are utterly amazing and they work in their own style of physical theatre, telling stories through movement and breath. Students were exhausted but invigorated and inspired!
