Forthcoming events include two devised pieces based on The Falling Man which is a piece of reportage by the American journalist Tom Junod. The Lower Fifth have been creating a devised piece of theatre using the iconic image of the falling man as stimuli and creating two physical theatre pieces which are being performed in June.It has been another busy and exciting year for all involved in the creative and performing arts at Culford with a wide range of musical events. These included an exceptional performance of Great Expectations and an equally exceptional musical in the Spring Term of We will Rock You. In addition, pupils have been preparing for exams in all three subjects.
Also, we have a contemporary dance showcase at the end of June, featuring the work of the pupils who take private lessons. They will showcase their solo and duet work, which is based on a series of themes such as brotherhood, conflict, and unification.
On Speech Day, Saturday 29 May, the U5 GCSE art and design pupils will celebrate their work in the Pringle Centre. At the end of June, A level Art and Design Technology pupils celebrate their achievement with a Private Viewing.
Culford’s musicians are entertaining Old Culfordian’s at the Tea for Two event in Old Hall and will feature in the afternoon Speech Day Concert this term. Our busy pupils will also be performing at both Opera in the Park on Saturday 17 June (www.culford.co.uk/opera) and Roots in the Park on Sunday 18 June (www.culford.co.uk/roots).
