On Monday 2nd July 2018 students from The Wilnecote School took part in The Physical Fellowship performance for the third consecutive year.
Students from years 7, 8 and 9 had worked with performer Ben Morley from the company Highly Sprung over two days to create a performance. The piece, based on the theme of reconciliation, explored the issues of war and colonisation and the impact they have on society.
They then performed the piece live on stage at The Belgrade Theatre Coventry as part of the week long Physical Fellowship project, the U.K’s only Physical Theatre Festival exclusively for young people. The students worked incredibly hard to create and rehearse the performance and did an amazing job at performing in front of a live, paying audience and we are very proud of them.
During the day the students also participated in workshops by members of the UK’s leading theatre companies including Vamos Mask Theatre, The Royal Shakespeare Company and Motion House Dance Theatre. The students had a really enjoyable day and learnt a lot from having the opportunity to work with so many industry professionals. It was a fantastic day and all of the students did themselves and the school proud.
