Year 7 Commedia Dell'Arte Workshop
A group of twenty Year 7 pupils have been involved in a workshop on Commedia Dell'Arte to consolidate their recent studies in Drama. Tom Newton from local stage school 'Theatre Stars' joined the group to explore aspects of performance and movement in relation to the characters of Commedia. The group worked exceptionally hard throughout the two hour workshop. They explored the history of the art form of Commedia, expanded their improvisation and performance skill and explored the use of grammelot. It was a thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining experience - well done to all!
