September will see the culmination of many important and exciting projects in the Drama & Theatre Arts Department.
Both ES4 and Poli 3 students are now nearing the completion of their courses. IGCSE candidates have now filmed monologues by Marivaux, Ionesco and Beckett among others for PAPER 2 of the Drama exam, producing their best work to date, and are now busy creating yet another group devised piece. Poli 3 IB candidates are now embarking on their last piece of coursework: an oral exam which amounts to an overview of their extraordinarily varied and bold work during the last two years.
Below are some pictures of Poli 3 IB students acting in their final works.
The stop-motion choreographies being created by ES1 students also merit mentioning. This project, which will also involve make-up design, is shaping very nicely indeed and bodes very well for their future work.
Last, but certainly not least, Feo, this year’s Junior Play will be performed on Tuesday 13th and Wednesday 14th of September at 8 pm in the Centenary Hall. The piece, devised by ES1 and ES2 students, takes Hans Christian Andersen’s The Ugly Duckling as a starting point to then explore the physical, mental and emotional changes that occur during puberty and adolescence. Truly, a play for the whole family since between the ages of 12 and 17, for example, a parent ages as much as 20 years.
