From 12 September, 12 Sixth Form dancers, musicians and actors had the fortunate opportunity to work with the Temper Theatre Company to create a performance piece, Kin, which will be shown on 17 and 18 October.
Temper Theatre Company are a physical theatre company who create work inspired by pressing socio-political and environmental issues. Using dance, realism, ensemble movement and complex immersive sound and lighting design, their work explores stories designed to resonate with contemporary culture and evoke a meaningful, individual response among diverse audiences.
We began to devise Kin with the consideration of the universally relevant themes of global warming and the impact of social media. It was inspiring to learn from Temper Theatre Company members Jack and Finn, who are acclaimed theatre creators and performers, and are currently on tour with their show Nighshifter in London.
