Last month a group of Year 10 and 11 students went up to Manchester to see a superb production by the physical theatre company ‘Gecko Theatre’.
The performance, which mixed dance and drama to create an exciting, fast-paced performance explored and told the stories of several different couples. Following them through the ups and downs of their relationships.
The stunning set and simple but effective use of props and lighting created a really entertaining performance. The highlight of which was probably some of the most unusual entrances in theatre with performers entering the stage via slides and suitcases.
Students really enjoyed the experience and it has inspired lots of ideas for the GCSE Component One performances that Year 11 students are currently devising. It was brilliant to have the chance to see such a unique and inspiring production.
