Block 5 BAC Theatre students recently faced the daunting task of performing the final part of their course (devised pieces) to the school and exam moderator in the Olivier Theatre. They responded well to the difficult assignment, creating intricately structured and thought-provoking masterpieces, which addressed complex and sophisticated themes, drawing inspiration from the challenging stimuli in last term’s exhibition The Big No by George Grosz. Each of the six groups worked in the style of either the practitioner Forced Entertainment or Brecht. Not only did the performers demonstrate skillful acting, but they also explored innovative techniques and showed expert playwriting, reflecting the experience that they have gained over the past two years.
