The process of putting on a play is huge. There is the set to think of, lighting, costumes, sound. There is choreography, learning lines, exploring your character. Since September we have been working on all these aspects of the play and now, less than a week away from our performance in Arusha, we are ironing out the last little bits to make this show as professional and inspiring as ever. As part of out BTEC Performing Arts course we have spent a great deal of time investigating the text, discussing how to make it relevant to an African audience, and really exploring the breadth and depth of our characters in order to bring them to life onstage.
Here is a short clip from rehearsals as our lead actors developed their characters.
