Manic Chord Theatre Performance and Workshop

On Monday 13th June, Year 10 were treated to a preview of the new work by Manic Chord Theatre; The Economy of Ecology. After the performance, the year 10 Drama class were fortunate to have two of the theatre company run a workshop using some of the techniques they used to devise their performance.

The students really worked well, developing their team skills, imagination and visualisation techniques to create a small but effective solo presentation.

Mr Butterfield arranged the event; “it is really important for students to see and work with industry professionals. They get a sense of relevance and can see how the work they do in class can lead to an increase in the quality of their work.”
