Drama has kept going during the Lockdown for our pupils
We have seen some wonderful pieces of work in Drama during the Lockdown.
Year 7s have been working on Greek masks, rhythm exercises, medieval morality plays, story writing, and much much more.
Year 8 have been both ‘Inspired’ and ‘Absurd’ as they have challenged the world around them, like Alice through the looking glass, through perception, philosophy and puppet theatre.
Meanwhile, the Year 9s have continued to explore how to devise their own plays and explore the work of Willy Russell’s powerful play, Blood Brothers.
We are extremely proud of the VE Day work that has taken place. Our girls have explored what it must have felt for those alive in Britain in World War II, by watching interviews, researching clothes & food, and writing their own monologues for characters that may have lived through the times.
Our 10s have been fabulous. The quality of work they have produced has been outstanding and they should be applauded for their efforts in exploring Arthur Miller, Brecht, Berkoff and Harold Pinter.
We hope you enjoy looking at some examples of the work, and we look forward to when we can see the girls face to face once more and revel in their imagination and skill in a practical performance space.
