Event: GCSE Drama
Based at our Conway Centres: Anglesey we have an excellent range of facilities for both the Performing and Visual Arts. We offer high quality education aimed at encouraging creativity, providing opportunity & raising attainment.
The Drama GCSE weekend is an exciting 3-day course aimed at Year 10 or 11 pupils from a variety of schools across the UK. Weekend courses will involve students working with a range of theatre professionals and utilising their skills to deliver unique programmes, giving students the opportunity to network with like-minded people.
Students will be introduced to the tutors and the associated learning on Friday evening, before taking part in carefully planned workshops throughout the weekend, with different drama practitioners. The residential weekend is led by Daniel Cambridge, who has a long association with the Conway Centre, has worked with many theatre companies and educational establishments, and alongside carefully selected theatre and teacher practitioners, will guide students though an array of experiences designed to unpack stimulus material, develop structure and improvisation techniques, and refine material through (for examples) immersive set design, creating dialogue, narrative-led movement and physical theatre.
Tutors for 2023/2024 include Lindsey Brocklebank, Grace Goulding, Dan Meigh and Chris Tomlinson.
