Event Details

Level 3 Year 1 Performing Arts perform a re-imagining of Shakespeare's Tempest. This production consists of two parts.

Recorded live in the Arts Centre Theatre and transmitted online.

Tempest: Our Year One students complete their year with us to perform an abridged Shakespearean play. Although a challenge, students have always risen to the occasion, and this performance has often shown students suffering 'Shakesfear' that Shakespeare is brilliant to perform. 

This year we have gone a little further. We have two classes in our Year 1 cohort, which presented us with an opportunity to approach the same play from different viewpoints. Our students also needed to devise performance elements to achieve their qualification, so we combined the work.

Tempest is made up of two plays; the first takes the story from the point of view of Prospero and the island's inhabitants and explores the impact of the shipwrecked characters on them and their lives, raising themes such as colonialism and slavery.

The second piece explores the play from the point of view of those caught up in the storm and shipwrecked on the island, raising themes such as status and grief.

Students are working to create elements of the play that are spoken of but not traditionally shown in a staging of The Tempest, including the trapping of the magical creature Ariel in a tree, the tempest itself which causes the play to begin and the chasing of the characters by demonic dogs.
