National Waterways

Posted on

On Thursday 14th March, four Year 13 learners from our Stagedoor Learning campus spent the morning at the National Waterways Museum in Gloucester, performing a piece of site specific theatre with visitors at the museum. The four learners have been studying Site Specific Performance as one of their optional units, and chose the National Waterways Museum as their focus. They researched the exhibits at the museum, as well as the museum building itself, which is part of the historic Gloucester Docks area of the city. They then created a performance which would both entertain and educate visitors about the life of people working on the canals around Gloucestershire in the 19th Century, with the intention that it would inspire visitors to further explore the museum and the history of the docks. The piece was created entirely by the students, and even included original songs. Pictured are (seated) Emily Green (L) and Beccy Bailey (R), and (standing) Liam Moore (L) and Kris Cullis. Emily, Beccy and Liam performed the piece several times throughout the morning, with Kris taking control of the technical and stage management aspects. Feedback from the museum staff and visitors was very positive!
