Performing Arts students take centre stage
Level 3 Performing Arts students received positive reviews for their performance of "Pool No Water" earlier this month.
Approximately 50 people gathered in the Drama Studio to witness the performance of physical theatre (involving mime and improvisation) which was also filmed as part of their course assessment.
Lecturer in Performing Arts, Mark Spillane, said he was very happy with the students and the hard work they put in to make the performance a success.
Although the piece only lasted 40 minutes, it was very physically and emotionally demanding of the actors.
The highly visual performance conveyed the story of a destructive friendship, between a group of people, through facial expressions and body movement.
One of the actors, Delroy Ogiste, said he was very pleased with how receptive the audience was to the storyline, which explores themes of jealousy and resentment.
“It’s about a group of friends and one is very successful. We’re all really nice to her face but once she turns her back the group changes,” Delroy explained.
“It’s quite an emotional story so we really needed to express ourselves strongly to the audience. But the crowd loved it, so that was great!”
Delroy said the Performing Arts course would be finishing up in May.
He intends to pursue acting further and has been going to interviews at various schools in London.
