10 years of The Drama Factory. Article in Metropolitan Magazine, Barcelona

Hi All!

We have started the term really well and I have two fantastic groups!
The last two sessions have been about getting to know each other and playing theatre games.
Lots of music and movement for the younger group too!

With the the older group we also played lots of games and the group's portrayal of a Swiss army knife was one of my favourites of the month so far!!!  Then we moved on to making short scenes, using Edward Hopper paintings as inspiration.  They did some really good work!  I was amazed how well they captured the atmosphere of some of those paintings!

Below is the article about The Drama Factory that is in this months edition of Metropolitan Magazine Barcelona if you would like a read!

Ted Hughes The Tiger's Bones Performance In June!

Hello All, well it's been a while since I posted on The Drama Factory Blog, so here is an update of our news.  We are coming up to the end of term performance and rehearsing like mad.  The group will be performing Ted Hughes's The Tiger's Bones.  This play was originally written in 1974 for the radio, but still is a poignant today as it was then.  We will be performing on Thursday 21st June at 19.00.  Students need to be at class at normal time of 18.10.
I look forward to seeing you all.

Well despite the Generalitat closing all schools in Barcelona on Thursday afternoon due to the phantom snow scare, kids still turned up for Thursday's Drama Factory class. Hurray!

We played Mood Party and laughed a lot!
Then we moved on looking at personal characteristics such as lazy, dizzy, super positive and playing those characteristics while following simple objectives.
A simple shoe shop became a very vibrant shop with some very peculiar customers and shop keepers!!
Next week we will start to look at a play I have in mind for our summer show.
Wrap up now.....that phantom snow may well be coming....
