MAD Showcase 2010
This year's Drama performance was based on an Interdisciplinary unit called Environment - What a mess ! The Drama students did workshops in Mask, performance poetry and movement. Using those elements and elements studied in the course, the class was broken into three groups. Each group brainstormed a area of the environment they would like to explore. Pollution was a key area. Projections were used to enhance the performance, with one group creating a shadow puppet performance. Each group came up with a 10 minute performance which we linked together under the idea of a news broadcast. It was the year 2090 and the earth had been evacuated because of environmental damage. The idea was inspired by the movie " The Age of Stupid". The finale was the cast coming together to sing " Saltwater" by Julian Lennon.
