The Performing Arts Department offered an exciting opportunity for Year 10 BTEC Dance students and Year 11, 12 and 13 Drama students. They took part in a ‘Devising and Physicality’ Workshop delivered by a member of one of the most celebrated and prominent physical theatre companies in the country, Frantic Assembly, who have a reputation for creating ‘energetic, thrilling and unforgettable theatre’. The workshops are fast paced, energetic and should leave the participants with the skills to develop their own work in a more dynamic and physically interesting way.
The experience of working with a professional practitioner aided the students in their respective current course studies as they approach their practical units of work. Due to the nature of the courses that the students are studying, the day was split into two workshops – one for the dancers and the other for the actors.
