Performing Arts students take to the stage

It’s been a busy period for the performing arts students with several performances under their belt in a short space of time.

Before Christmas the year one level three students undertook their technical immersive theatre performance, where a guest at a time were guided around different scenes within the performing studio.

The year one group also performed Confused Heads, their end of year performance.

The year two students also took centre stage during the same period as they performed their Audition for Actors as part of their unit.

This unit equips students with the planning skills and key acting techniques needed to deliver effective audition performances for employment in live theatre and filmed media.

The showcase demonstrated a range of performance pieces that the students have worked on and included in their practical portfolio.

Next up for the year two students will be their Directors Project, which had to be delayed until the new year due to the college moving to online learning for the final week of last term due to the pandemic.

The aim of the Director Projects is to introduce aspiring young directors to the range of knowledge required to enable them to set off confidently on the complicated route to being an experienced and accomplished director.

Students will independently direct a short performance, demonstrating directorial intentions, methods and study in a thorough and detailed manner.

Attentions will then turn to the end of year productions, with work currently underway.

Previous productions include Chicago, Macbeth and Cabaret as well as site specific performances which have taken place at the Silver Mountain Experience and the streets of Borth in the past.
