GGS Drama trip: ‘A Day with Bruiser’

On Thursday 28th January Grosvenor’s GCSE and A level Drama students were the recipients of a highly worthwhile opportunity when they attended a thoroughly enjoyable one-day event at The MAC, Belfast, exploring The Bruiser Theatre Company’s unique performance style.

The Bruiser Theatre Company was founded in 1997 and adopts an artistic policy of "minimal set for maximum impact", focusing on the actors' ability to engage the audience, without relying on elaborate sets, costume and lighting; the actor is the central mechanism of performance, and Bruiser's choice of scripts allows exploration of the essential dynamics of theatre: the actor, the audience and the space.

Over four different workshops, entitled; ‘Physical and Ensemble style’, ‘Devising and Physicality’, ‘Performing Arts Organisations/Preparing for Audition’ and ‘Text versus Movement’, Grosvenor pupils, alongside students from ten other Northern Irish schools, gained invaluable experience by exploring the physicality of Bruiser’s approach to Drama. The event included tutor-led classes, group discussions, explorations of texts from page to stage and a final performance in the MAC’s ‘Black Box Studio’.

Many thanks to Grosvenor’s Drama teacher Mrs Young, as well as all of those individuals who helped to organise the event, making it an extremely enjoyable experience.

We now look forward to seeing Grosvenor’s GCSE and A Level Drama students treading the boards in the William Moles Hall later in the year.
