Theatre workshop

On 10th November the Sixth Form and Fourth Year Theatre Studies pupils took part in an inspiring and highly energetic workshop by Max Lindsay from the Nuffield Theatre, Southampton. The workshop was a practical exploration of the work of the French theatre director and practitioner Antonin Artaud, who pioneered the niche style known as Theatre of Cruelty. Pupils explored a more visceral approach to performance with enthusiasm and much noise, creating powerful pieces around the themes of human trafficking, dictators and mental health issues.
