Working collaboratively with like-minded peers and with our little robot ‘Sparky’ students will discover how to race him around a track.

Poetry in Motion

Theatre is a collaborative form of fine art that uses live performers to present an experience of a real or imagined event before a live audience. Poetry in its simplest form is a literary work in which the expression of feelings and ideas are given intensity with distinctive styles and rhythms of writing. Discover how we work collaboratively to explore, deconstruct and interpret a contemporary poem and create a physical construct?
