Students at Acacia Hill School were working this week with guest artist Kat Worth to develop their theatre project, Close to Me.
Through talking, writing, drawing and dancing the students had arrived at a theme for the piece of personal space – who to let come close, when and how, how to set boundaries.
Their thinking started with defining what's important and precious to them. The answer was family, friends, and home and the work grew from there.
Kat devised tasks to get their performance ideas flowing, for example, by creating their own 'countries' on the floor, bounded by masking tape, then inviting people in and pushing them out.
