GCSE Drama Pupils Learn How To Fly!
08th Oct 2018
Richard Neale, a professional actor with Frantic Assembly, the physical theatre company responsible for the movement in 'Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time' spent six hours training our GCSE and A Level students how to create amazing physical theatre sequences.
Frantic Assembly are one of the most popular and innovative theatre companies working today, and we were privileged to have one of their company come and run a physical theatre workshop with our students.
The workshop covered heaps of techniques and approaches to Drama, from how to work as an effective ensemble to how to create mesmerising physical theatre routines through simple "building blocks".
Pupils then learnt how to "fly", learning some spectacular lifts, both in pairs and in larger groups, before creating amazing sequences applying all they had learnt.
Not only was it an incredibly fun and exhausting day, but it has already inspired the GCSE students to think of inventive ways to bring their devised pieces to life, with new and exciting sequences already being created.
