Drama students at Solihull Sixth Form College showed off their own devised productions at a Drama Showcase this week.
The second year A level students created their own performances for Component 2 of their A level Drama course: Creating Original Theatre. For this, students explored a range of stimuli and devised their own productions, covering a range of topics including knife crime, climate change, homophobia and human extinction. Some of the students were assessed on their performance skills, while others were technical candidates and were being assessed on their lighting and costume design.
Drama teacher Nadia Kouhi commented:
“The students worked incredibly hard on these performances. They tackled very hard-hitting subjects and delivered their ideas with well thought-out dialogue and acting skills, not to mention careful use of lighting, sound and costume. They performed these extracts for friends and family, but only after they had performed for first year students, who were able to give them some valuable feedback to improve their performances. The students will perform these pieces again next week when they will be assessed on their performances.”
Anyone wanting to find out more about studying A level Drama & Theatre is invited to attend Open Evening on Wednesday 27 November (5.00 – 8.00pm, last entry at 7.30pm). Online pre-registration is now open and will remain open until 12.00pm on the day of the event.
