On Tuesday 23 September, the Year 10 Performing Arts BTEC group visited Falmouth University Performing Arts Centre to watch a matinee performance by Belarus Free Theatre. The piece, Price of Money, was an exploration of the social and political ideologies behind capitalism.
The performance included five scenes exploring the impact of money on our lives. The cast included a mix of British and Russian actors, and used subtitles to bridge the gap between the languages. As well as devised scenes, the piece included other sources of literature such as the poem "Money" by Philip Larkin, and extracts from historical events. It even included audience participation with Keiran and Mrs Trevarthen!
The students thoroughly enjoyed the show and are looking forward to using this experience to inspire their preparations for their own showcases in the future.
