Student Devised Theater

Gr. 10 drama students have been exploring devised theater and they focused on the themes of memory and identity. What does memory and identity mean to us and to others? From this they were tasked with creating an original piece of theatre, inspired by the work of Bertolt Brecht and Epic Theatre, as well as The Paper Birds and Verbatim Theatre. By coincidence both groups chose to focus on memory loss and how a traumatic accident can affect our memories, as well as how our actions can affect others around us. On Thursday November 18th they performed in front of a student audience in the Multi Purpose Hall. Their performances were very creative and well received by their peers. We hope to invite families into school to see their next performance in Semester 2!
