White Cobra Productions Workshop

24th June 2016

On Thursday 16th June year 12 drama students had the exciting opportunity to participate in a ‘White Cobra Productions’ workshop. The morning was spent learning and rehearsing different dramatic techniques; particularly storytelling and mime, to help their preparation for their devised work, which will form an important part of their A level examinations later this year. The students met the company’s Stage Manager, Technical Manager and worked alongside Kate Billingham and Richard Jordan. The company used innovative exercises to help the class develop their skills, sharing advice from their own professional experiences. Then, in the afternoon the students watched Richard Jordon perform in Justin Butchers’ ‘Scaramouche Jones’, directed by Kate Billingham. The one man play was both thrilling and thought provoking, containing the techniques from the earlier workshop. This was followed by the chance to discuss the play with the company and ask about the development process, benefitting the students’ knowledge of dramatic devising techniques. It was an ‘incredible performance’ to end the ‘amazing day’ which was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.
