Tell me about some of your current students.
My current A2 students were inspired when I introduced them to Frantic Assembly techniques of producing contemporary physical theatre that is thrilling and energetic. This has proved successful as part of their assessment of exploration of a performance. Students used their imagination and took ownership of their own concept producing impressive pieces of self-written dramas tackling diverse styles and forms of theatre with serious subject matters such as; Human survival, London Riots and Alzheimer's and performances were committed and focused. When evaluating, their target audience feedback was positive; it was clear the audiences were moved.
