The Dynamics of Friendships
This creative devising holiday course will be based on students creating both a stage set, as well as devising their own piece of theatre. It will give students an opportunity to tell a story using movement, art, acting and singing. The programme will be a collaborative process, the student's original work will emerge from their improvisational and collaborative efforts.
Be prepared to have fun, to sing, maybe to dance, but most of all to act and create with other likeminded people.
Students will be involved in making a short film/documentary with all the actors and characters throughout the week.
