This epic production with the brilliant students of Westminster Kingsway College saw The@trical utilise their physical theatre and dance skills. We created two beautiful pieces of silent theatre where students learnt to focus on physical language rather than spoken. Using the music of George Gershwin we created two different productions that utilised older students and enabled many of them to access a theatre for the first time. It was a huge challenge that took everyone out of their comfort zone and made a huge impact on the community of Kings Cross.
Farmer Sam (a sensory story)
Our first collaboration with QEII Jubilee school saw us take our steps into the engrossing world of sensory stories. Working with a cohort of students who find it harder to access spoken language, Farmer Sam provided an opportunity to experience the joys of all the seasons and a change in the fortunes of a struggling farm. This was a huge achievement for QEII students and the first of many dramatic productions that we plan to stage with them.
Roald Dahl (2015)
This was no small project. The@trical undertook their first whole school production with College Park school. Utilising over 75 SEN students, we adapted and edited the work of Roald Dahl and brought to life the colourful characters of Mr and Mrs Twit, Matilda, Willy Wonka and many more. We didn't see a dry eye in the house by the time the curtain came down!
