Russian and British Connections

April 8, 2019

The last few days at Fisher On Stage have been packed with workshops delivered by professional performing arts tutors from the UK and Russia! 


All week we've been exploring the theme of 'Connection', with each workshop designed to approach the theme from a different angle.


No matter which room you enter, there's always rehearsals happening, whether it's individuals learning Shakespeare in Russian in the cafe area, pairs interviewing each other in the gallery or groups rehearsing dance numbers in the auditorium. The whole Fisher Theatre is alive!


Here's a sneak peak of what the teens have been up to so far...


Exploring musical theatre pieces from 'Footloose' and 'Stand By Me' with Upshoot Theatre Company's director Laila France.



Discovering each other's culture through verbatim and improvisation workshops with Moscow-based theatre director Jonathan Salway. Who can spot the tug-o-war rope?



Devising emotive physical theatre pieces with movement choreographer Beth Keys-Hollaway.



 Learning to speak and perform Shakespeare in a second language with Shakespearia's Natalia Bayrak. The first time even attempting to speak Russian for most of the British students!



On Wednesday evening at 7:30pm the students will present on stage everything they have been working on. They've really dived into the deep end, so I'm excited to see how the 'Connections' will continue to develop through the week!
