QEGS drama students participating in a variety of workshops at Lincoln University.

On Wednesday 30th October, GCSE and 6th form drama students spent a day in the drama and theatre department at the University of Lincoln. Students participated in a variety of university style workshops. First was a workshop with Dr James Hudson on how to read a play. Students learned the importance of investigating subtext so that they can perform a character's sub-textual intention, rather than just recite lines. A workshop was then given by Dr Kelly Jones, a specialist in theatrical realizations of the supernatural, where students learnt techniques on how to stage a ghost story. Following this, students thoroughly enjoyed a physical workshop run by Dr Michael Pinchbeck exploring space and how to incorporate choral movement within performance. Finally, students developed skills in scriptwriting with Darren Page, learning how to draw inspiration from historical, social and cultural events to develop their own scriptwriting skills. Students found the day to be very valuable and inspirational. We look forward to visiting the university again next year!
