Nick Mahmat, Drama Curriculum Specialist, once again visited NACIS Shanghai as part of the ongoing partnership between Juilliard and Nord Anglia Education. As a set-design specialist, he led Grade 8 through a session of building model sets for a play students have been studying in their Drama lessons: ‘The Boy at the Edge of Everything’ by Finegan Kruckemeyer. With Drama gradually becoming a bigger part of the Primary School, Nick worked with Grade 1-5 students in the Acting ECA, exploring how to use their bodies and develop character walks. With great enthusiasm, the Grade 6 students developed their use of narration with action, completing their study of ‘The Magic City’ by Manuel Cinema. As with all Nick’s previous visits, he was thoroughly impressed with our students and expressed his gratitude for how welcome he was made to feel at NACIS Shanghai.
