group had been working on the play during
lesson time, learning about this particular
style of physical theatre where actors use
their whole body and voice to communicate
inanimate objects as well as characters
within the play.
It is a particularly demanding style of
performance which the students delighted in.
The set was created using 8 metal frames
which were moved by the actors within the
action to create different performing spaces
on stage. All actors were dressed in dark
suits, their faces were painted white. This
enabled their expressions to take on a mask
like quality fully communicating the
grotesque style of the piece.
The audience members were full of praise for
the standard of performance achieved by the
students. We look forward to to their
examination piece in Year 11.
"The best year 10 GCSE drama piece I have ever seen, I really loved EVERYTHING about it!"
