Across the corridor in Drama, students were working with Moscow’s very own ‘English Theatre Company’ Flying Banana Theatre. Around 15 students embarked on a journey of character exploration and physicality based on Greek myths resulting in well-received performances that were shared in a special assembly at the end of term.
I can say with some certainty that there has certainly never been a ‘louder’ end to a term at ISM in my 10 years working here. Samba Real, a Moscow based Samba Band brought the authentic sound of Brazil through music and dance to around 40 ISM students. Learning a new musical instrument is a challenge and can take a long period of time to master. However, ISM music students not only mastered a full samba rhythm section but managed to learn two energetic pieces, sending students and staff dancing into the Easter weekend.
