Season 2 continues
Season 2 reaches its’ half way point with HOMEGROW, ClassAction’s festival of devised theatre, new contemporary pieces of physical theatre created by our first year drama practitioners. Performance work throughout our season, and particularly during this festival brings to life claims about inclusiveness, learning that engages, and valuing the talents of the individual. It is hard to find a subject that has a stronger focus on the quality of the end result: there will be a performance, it must be well researched and professional, and there will be nowhere to hide.
Theatre has the possibility to show us a glimpse of the impossible as something reachable, and HOMEGROWN throws this work into focus. The work performed as part of the festival presents the world in microcosm, showing us that theatre can cause us to question without throwing us into confusion.
Our Loneliness Studio Session allowed our performing arts practitioners to explore the art of creating ten minute solo performances, stripped back with no tricks or gimmicks, or indeed other performers to hide behind.
These were considered, thoughtful pieces of contemporary theatre and certainly shows why many of our practitioners are getting offers for training at some of the country’s top drama and dance schools in September.
Our ethos also embraces development and training, and we are currently running Dance Lab – a weekly technique and performance dance class pushing practitioners to develop as all round performers alongside ClassAction Singers who meet weekly to explore numbers from contemporary musicals.
Our results and the work created testifies to our success, as does the range of successful ex-students now working and studying in the creative industries. Our practitioners are currently sitting on many offers for September 2018 including from; Guildford School Of Acting, East 15, MTA, PPA, Trinity Laban, Evolution, M.A.D.D, Arts Ed. #classact #made in godalming
