The beauty of this story is captured in movement in this piece of physical theatre. Using naturalistic movement, the story is performed so the narrative is constant, without any actual spoken text.
Bold, feisty, emotional and full of artistic truth, this production pushes the boundaries of where Shakespeare's text can go. The performers consistently push their bodies and challenge themselves in their roles to maintain an air of belief and intensity.
The piece is performed by a mix of dancers and actors, using skills from both disciplines fused together to create an exciting and interesting piece of work.
About Warrington Collegiate
The performance company are a mixture of students from Warrington Collegiate Institute, directed by Deborah Clitheroe, a teacher in the college's Performing Arts department.
The students are mixed-ability first- and second-years studying for the Level 3 Diploma in Performing Arts in a variety of disciplines: dance, acting and musical theatre.
There are also four students in the company who are studying on the HNC in Performing Arts course at Warrington Collegiate Institute. These students have worked alongside the director and other students to help devise the work in an innovative and exciting way.
Previously the company have performed many productions both in and outside college, and as part of the Warrington Arts Festival.
