Challenging topics tackled through performance

Monday evening saw the two Year 11 Drama classes present their original Devising pieces to an audience of friends and family.

They had all studied the plays Niu Sila and Dawn Raids which looked at the history of New Zealand and treatment of immigrants. From this stimulus they came up with a wide variety of performances. They confronted issues such as how to stand up for what you believe is right, remaining silent isn’t the solution, the pressure on women to look a certain way and gender roles in society.

This was a wonderful evening full of energy, conviction and a lot of inspiration.
