The Physicality of Drama

This week, Drama students in Year 12 participated in an incursion with Swoop Physical Theatre.  The workshop titled Group Devising Physicality, focussed on teaching students the basics of acrobalance, a floor-based acrobatic art that involves balances, lifts and creating shapes performed in pairs or groups. 

Miss Laura Richardson, SGCS Drama Teacher said:
This workshop opened the students’ minds on how they can build upon various body movements to inspire the meaning of a performance. The students built their ensemble skills to explore how to create different shapes and levels with their bodies, and explored ways in which they could use these new-found skills to create a physically and visually exciting performance.
