The Kagools

This week BIS HCMC welcomed comedy duo Wilkinson Ford into the Drama department.


Nicola Wilkinson and Claire Ford are professional actors who have been touring Australia with their show The Kagools. Their show is a silent piece that utilises clowning, multi-media and audience interaction and it is brilliant! (For those non-Brits amongst us a ‘kagool’ is a waterproof coat).


They have been working with students this week and Year 10 and 12 have thoroughly enjoyed their time with them. They have explored how comedy is developed and the importance of complicite (an unspoken connection) within a double act.


It was great to see the students release their inhibitions and throw themselves fully into comedy. I am incredibly impressed with their attitudes and the way they welcomed Nicola and Claire into the department. The Kagools are currently developing their new show and BIS is proving to be an inspirational place for them to create and rehearse their piece (something we have known for a long time). If anyone is in Edinburgh over the summer be sure to check out their show.


Nicola and Claire have loved Vietnam and BIS so much that they are going to be around for a little bit longer – keep your eyes open for some cheeky Kagools around the playground next week!
