On Wednesday the 23rd March the Secondary Arts department will be presenting and evening of the Arts. On one evening we will have two excellent Arts events. At 6pm in the theatre the Secondary production ‘A Dream’ will be presented for parents and members of the school community.
This year’s Senior Drama Company production “A DREAM” is a compilation of contemporary scripted and group devised scenes linked together by this theme and uses a range of modern theatrical techniques to entertain and provoke thought from the audience. The small cast has been working on the production since last year. Movement, mime, masks and a touch of Shakespeare, to celebrate the 400th year of the bard’s death, combine for an entertaining production.
This will then be followed by our first Diploma Art Exhibition at 7pm in the exhibition space on the 3rd floor by the Drama rooms.
The DP exhibition is an accumulation of the past 18 months work for our first set of Graduates. The exhibition is a celebration of Miki, Laavanya, Grace and Isabelle’s individual processes. The work demonstrates their personal styles, exploring themes important to them such as autobiographical work, expectations and perceptions of women both culturally and globally, and mass medias influence on our world. Also displayed will be selected works of the DP 1s ( grade 11) Anna, Afifah, Hayato, Jeffery, Yin Xzi, Yuto and Zoe have created works based around similar concepts but with vastly different outcomes.
We would like to invite all members of the school community to come and share in these events and enjoy the hard work of all the students involved. There will be light refreshments available on the 3rd floor following the Secondary production just before the official opening of the DP Art Exhibition. Please come and support both of these excellent Arts events.
