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.
