Last week we were very lucky to welcome BYTE (Backyard Theatre Ensemble) to our school. We witnessed an energetic and engrossing theatre piece based on the scenario of what if a range of Shakespearean heroines such as Juliet, Viola and Helena bumped into one another in the magical Forest of Arden. What ensued was a funny and revealing exploration of identity, relationships, love, gender and what it means to be young in today’s times.
Following on from this, Director Joachim Matschoss delivered a series of dynamic workshops to a range of groups. All of our Drama students benefited from Joachim’s experience that will certainly feed into their subject knowledge and assessments.
