Lord of the Flies Trip

12th February 2016

All Key Stage 4 Drama pupils went to the Curve Theatre to watch a highly acclaimed production of Lord of the Flies. Golding's classic was brought to life in a spine chilling and thought provoking production. Pupils and staff were left spellbound and feeling distinctly uncomfortable!

We are going to use the production to explore Artaud's ideas and theories on his ' Theatre of Cruelty' based around his belief that "man is a savage under the skin!".  We will look at symbolism, ritualism and emotive communication outside of language.
