GCSE & A Level Drama Workshop with The Paper Birds Theatre Company
GCSE and A Level Drama students were fortunate enough to experience an excellent drama workshop from the up-and-coming UK theatre company, The Paper Birds. The company specialise in devising thought-provoking drama in their own style and have started to create a real name for themselves in the UK theatre industry.
The students were taken through a challenging workshop where they developed their use of physicality in order to communicate a narrative on stage. Responding to the given stimulus of climate change, students constructed drama using their own opinions and the those of notable speakers on this topic such as Greta Thunberg. They explored performance skills including using bodily tension and voice to communicate a variety of perspectives. They thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and cannot wait to now apply some of the techniques that they have learnt about in preparation for their upcoming examinations.
