We are so excited to share with the friends and families of the Youth Theatre classes a physical theatre play called Perspectives.
Our high school students have been hard at work learning the techniques used in physical theatre, understanding the genre and bringing to life this piece.
Actors will be dressed in black; they will use broomsticks which are transformed into a number of different props.
This play requires the optimal use of both body and voice. A challenge our students are accepting boldly.
Physical theatre is a type of theatrical performance which emphasises physical expression as the primary conveyor of dramatic meaning.
It goes beyond the narrative, incorporating physical and visual elements on a level at least equal to verbal elements. It is, however, more than simply abstract movement – it includes some element of character, narrative, relationships and interaction between the performers.
Perspectives will be performed by all Youth Theatre classes this year. We hope to see you all there.
