09 May Drama Update
The A2 Drama group successfully completed their Unit 3 devised piece at the Barbican Pit Theatre (pictured above) before Easter as part of Barbican Box 2016.
Their piece ‘The Pursuit of Justice’ was created from the theme of Shakespeare and the box full of stimuli and tools from various practitioners associated with the Barbican. This included the death warrant from Hamlet chosen by Benedict Cumberbatch.
The piece was enjoyed by the invited audience who gave them a standing ovation. They had worked with their mentor Naomi Fredericks during the day which obviously paid off.
Since January the Year 9s have worked with practitioners from the Almeida Theatre and performed their created pieces, reflecting on the set of Uncle Vanya and exploring modern day technologies. They had their performances in March at the Almeida.
