Drama Trip

Drama Trip

Our drama class recently ventured to London to explore the Tate Modern as well as watch Damon Albarn’s newest production Wonder.land, a futuristic interpretation of the iconic Lewis Carroll tale centred around the boundaries between the real and virtual world. We started off the day at the Tate, exploring the top floor galleries and admiring the work of artists like Lorna Simpson, Gustav Metzger and Simyrn Gill. Here we photographed pieces of art we felt related to Thoreau's quote “It's not what you look at, it's what you see that matters...” to give us inspiration for our devised pieces. It was here many students were shocked at the prices of tuna sandwiches as we used the Tate’s café as our meeting point before we set off along Bankside to the National Theatre. The musical had mixed reviews but all in all was a very enjoyable and light hearted approach to the idea our lives are dominated by technology. The feedback from our class has been nothing but positive so the day was deemed a success- even if a phone was lost in the gallery, buried somewhere amongst a sea of bean bags.
