Have you heard ever heard the story of El Silbón? On Monday 20 March, the Year 11 Drama students took their audience on an eerie journey into Venezuelan folklore as they presented their Ritual Theatre Assessment Performance.

Under the expert guidance of Mrs Strand and Ms Morley, Year 11 Drama explored the conventions of Ritual Theatre including chorus, symbol and ritual through motif, as they staged the story of El Silbón (The Whistler). This high energy, physical performance was enhanced by considered sound, lighting and make up choices, which helped build the tension and create an atmosphere that left their audience breathless. Congratulations, Year 11.
