The Introduction to Devising Workshop
/ Categories: 16 January 2020General
On Sunday 12 January, Year 10 and 12 drama students were generous enough to give up part of their weekend, come to school and get creative. The Introduction to Devising Workshop saw students inspired by various stimulus, including the play Trojan Women, a quote from Beyoncé ‘Power’s not given to you. You must take it.’ and a quote from Hanya Yanagihara ‘She knew that he wore his life on his skin, that his biography was written in flesh and on his bones’.
These stimuli made fabulous starting points for the students, who began researching and discussing, pulling together creative ideas from a variety of sources and perspectives. Practical work was started, with everyone incorporating the techniques of their chosen practitioners (Brecht and Frantic Assembly) alongside their research. It was a productive day, and fantastic to see the students working independently within their groups. A fabulous start to their component 1!
