IB Solo Theatre Pieces

Last week, in the Drama Hall, invited audiences were transfixed by the exceptional standard of performances produced by the IB Theatre Arts Upper Sixth pupils during Thursday and Friday lunchtimes. These performances make up the practical element of their IB Solo Theatre Pieces, which are original works that have been conceived, developed and performed by the pupils individually. Based on research into aspects of key theory from practitioners they have chosen to study, this was the first time pupils at MCM have explored the theories of Robert Lepage and Robert Wilson, while other pieces focused on the more popular choices of Bertolt Brecht, Jacques Lecoq and Antonin Artaud. The collective body of work produced was extremely powerful and demonstrates the commitment of the group as a whole, and each piece was followed by a talk-back session in which audience members were able to share their thoughts with the performers.
