What happens when you put 16 Russian students and 15 British students on an intense theatre course in the heart of Suffolk? Well, we’re about to find out…
We’ve had a fantastic first couple of days on Fisher On Stage, an international theatre exchange project based at the Fisher Theatre in Bungay!
Yesterday was packed with performances that were part of the National Theatre’s Connections Festival. Both groups, the Fisher Youth Theatre Group and Shakespearia from IH Voronezh - Linguist demonstrated exceptional confidence, creativity and command of the stage.
We were impressed with the stamina of the young people, as they walked backwards and forwards between the Garage and Norwich Playhouse (well, not literally backwards, but you get what we mean!) There was even the chance to share theatre games from across the world during our lunch break in Chapelfield Gardens.
A wonderful day topped off with a celebratory buffet meal with dishes from around the world!
Bring on the next four days!
