This week we are lucky enough to have 3 complete newbies writing our blog and sharing their FIRST EVER TVYT EXPERIENCE.
Meet Annie (11), Victoria (12) and Emma (14).
During the course of this play in a week, we have experienced a range of drama activities, which have helped to develop our confidence and creativity.
We have really enjoyed experimenting with different scenes, themes and ideas which we could use in our own play.
Moreover, we received arts award booklets to record the various activities and games we did throughout the week. We also found out facts and information, about the company TVYT that we recorded in our arts award booklet. Furthermore, we researched information about an artist and recorded that in the booklet too.
The play we created was based on The Hunger Games. Our play, 'The Birds Stop To Listen' tells the story of people competing to earn a place on ‘The Arc’, travelling to Earth's twin to escape the horrors of the futuristic world that they live in. The competitors partake in a series of challenges to gain points on their microchip, the winners escape to The Arc.
Overall we have thoroughly enjoyed this week and feel that there has been an incredibly supportive atmosphere to help us to express our ideas and creativity. We hope to come back next year to enjoy the same experience!
