Last Wednesday the A-level Drama and Theatre group kicked off the new year by taking part in a workshop with Nick O’Brien from The Stanislavski Experience. This was a fantastic opportunity to experience the work of Katie Mitchell, an innovative, internationally renowned theatre director, in preparation for their next performance which will use her techniques. The pupils spent time exploring the background of characters in great detail before combining their stage performances with real-time use of multimedia. Popping bubble wrap and flickering orange lights set the tone for a crackling fire which provided the backdrop for one of the play’s pivotal moments.
They’re looking forward to putting into practice all the techniques and possibilities that this style of theatre offers!
